Our 2018 May LSP National Teacher of the Month is Ms. Gabi Salmento from our Leawood, KS location! Ms. Gabi was an aide for two years and is now the assistant teacher in the Under the Sea classroom.

Ms. Gabi currently works full time at Little Sunshine’s Playhouse and Preschool while also being a full time student. When asked what she enjoys most about working for LSP, Gabi responded “I cannot pick just one thing. To start, I absolutely love my kids. They brighten my day and make me love coming to work. Secondly, my coworkers are amazing encouragers. They help me get through each day. I love them. Lastly, my managers are so supportive and understanding. I could not ask for better managers”.

Gabi explained to us that she loves how the toddlers in her class are little explorers. She enjoys seeing her kiddos develop every single day – from not talking much, to saying her name and their classmate’s names nonstop! She also really loves watching their emotions show and develop as they learn new things in her class.

Here’s what Gabi’s director, Jodi, had to say about her “She is extremely reliable, punctual and very flexible. She is wonderful with the children and the parents adore her. Gabi is a great employee and we love having her as part of our team at LSP Leawood”.

Outside of working at LSP, Gabi loves going out to dinner with friends and going shopping.

We are so proud to recognize Gabi as our May National Teacher of the Month!
