Ms. Shelly has been a teacher at Tiny Tykes since September of 2014. She started working at the early age of 16 at a greenhouse in Topeka, KS. She quickly realized that she had a passion for floral design and after graduation started working full time as a floral designer. After that, Ms. Shelly ventured into the cleaning industry and opened her own cleaning company in 1990, while working for a few local doctors cleaning and filing. In addition, Ms. Shelly was creating window displays and arrangements for a local interior designer’s shop called Marie’s A to Z. Ms. Shelly has two children, Heather and Tyler, and they are truly her greatest achievement in life. Since working at Tiny Tykes, Ms. Shelly knows she has found her true calling. She loves her job and thrives on the gratification she receives from the love and learning the kids show her.
