    Angel Harris, Director

    Ms. Angel Harris is our new Director at Kiddie Academy. She has worked in the early childcare industry for over 15 years and has received her Directors License and American Montessori certification. Ms. Angel's philosophy for teaching is that our children are the future, and if we fill them with love, respect, and positive redirection, they will grow and give back to the world. Her goal is to guide, develop, and mentor the teachers to give our children the opportunity to learn through experiences in the environment. This will include materials that help them develop academically as well as socially. Ms. Angel upholds our open-door policy to both teachers and parents always ready to be a listening ear and will do her best to support the needs of the school.

    Ryan Francis, Business Owner

      I am a native of Houston; in 2001, I graduated from the University of Texas with a BA in Political Science.  I began my career in May of that year working on the energy desk, as a registered associate, for Prudential Securities and continued to become a junior broker for Wachovia Securities. In this role, I identified hedging opportunities for energy companies; and gave fundamental and technical advice for institutional, commercial and private client accounts.  It offered me a wonderful experience.    Following my five years on the banking side, I took a sales manager position for a midlevel private chemical company.  Since 2006, I have been responsible for growing and managing many commercial chemical accounts for Gulf Chemical International, from a sales, purchasing and inventory management position.   I bring this experience and enthusiasm to the exciting field of child development and education.  Along with my wife Ashley, we look forward to the wonderful opportunity ahead.
