what our employees say

- Amy Shah

 Teacher’s Aid since 2003
“I was a stay-at-home mom before I started at JUK. When my kids were out of the house, I looked for a part-time job. I accepted the job at Just Us Kids with the intention of working short-term. After working for a year, I never thought of leaving and now 20 years have passed. Just Us Kids is a very happy and comforting place to work. The Executive Director trained me. She is still my good friend and values my long service. I love working with children, they are my service. I always look forward to coming into work.”

“I love how much of a family we are at JUK.”

- Samantha Haan

Toddler Teacher since 2021
 I am always encouraged and welcomed with any and all questions I may have. We truly have the best children and parents as well.  I feel so well supported in everything I do here.

“I have the best, most caring and supportive coworkers and bosses.”

- Chaianne Cannon

Early Pre-K Teacher since 2019
“I have worked at Just Us Kids for five years, starting as a part-time teacher’s aide before transitioning into a full-time Early Pre-K teacher for the past four years. Having been in both positions, I can honestly state that they value all of their employees and support us inside and outside the classroom. We all have the children’s best interests at heart, and we work as a team with the families to ensure they get the best care. The relationships that I have made with the administration, my co-workers, and the families I have encountered during my time at Just Us Kids are some that I will cherish forever.”

“My favorite aspects of JUK is how dedicated everyone is and how we collaborate...” 

- Becky Asher
