 Shannon Jones, Director of Early Childhood 
"I believe the children are our future. Teach them well and let them lead the way. Show them all the beauty they possess inside. Give them a sense of pride to make it easier. Let the children's laughter remind us how we used to be."
Shannon Jones has been working in the field of education for over 15 years.  She is an early childhood specialist with a strong background in therapeutics. She currently is studying project management to further her skills within the education field, and is excited to be leading the early childhood programs at the NET: Gentilly and the NET: East.
Angel Cummings, Assistant Childcare Teacher
"Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others." Philippians 2:4
Ms. Angel values everything that deals with the truth and she loves to be 100% real.  She wants to see nothing but the best for people. She loves to see children learning and growing and getting better with their education, so she's honored to be that positive light for a child to keep going and don’t quit. That belief is not only for the younger kids it’s even for the older kids because even though she's in her 20s, she has made mistakes and if she can educate somebody to not make the same mistakes, she conders that an honor and a privilege.
