Chelsea Enright 

Director

 

Chelsea is a 2011 graduate of Penn State with a B.S. in Human Development and Family Studies.  She also recently finished her M.S. in Applied Developmental Psychology from Pitt in April of 2017, although she will ALWAYS cheer for the Nittany Lions!  She spent over five years teaching preschool for Hildebrandt Learning Centers and Bright Horizons, where she spent time building relationships with her students – a practice she hopes to continue here at Kidz Korner.

She is from the Lehigh Valley and often travels back home to spend time with her family on weekends. 

She indulges a little too much in reality TV…especially those on TLC, the Discovery Channel and Bravo and her DVR seems like it’s always almost full!  Chelsea  also loves to spend time reading, doing jigsaw puzzles, playing games and traveling when she gets the chance.  Her favorite traveling experiences so far have been road (and camping) trip from San Francisco (to Napa Valley to Lake Tahoe to Yosemite) down the Pacific Coast Highway to San Diego and a month spent studying abroad in Italy.  Her next vacation goals are Iceland and a road trip from Vancouver to San Francisco!

Sharon Musser

After School Supervisor

I have been married to my husband, Bob for 23 years, we have 2 very busy teenage sons, Adam (18) and Lucas (16) and we live in Mars.  I am as active as my work schedule allows in the boys sports and such, while also participating in my mother’s care part-time.  As an added bonus I am an avid Pittsburgh sports fan, mostly the Penguins, but I do watch the Steelers and pay attention to the Pirates too.  There’s hardly ever a dull moment in my life and I love it!!!

I have worked with children for most of my life, whether as a babysitter as a teenager, as a caregiver at several different child care facilities and most recently as a TSS (Therapeutic Staff Support) for children on the autism spectrum. 

I am very excited about this next chapter in my career and look forward to getting to know all of the children and families here at St. Paul’s.

Alice Wilson

Morning and Afternoon Assistant

 alice-wilson Alice has been a teacher’s aide at Kidz Korner for five years, working shifts in both the morning and afternoon.  As a teacher’s aide, Alice helps provide the kids with meals, provide homework assistance and a friendly ear for conversation, as well as an opponent in and games (classroom or gym) that the students wish to play!

Before she came to work at Kidz Korner, Alice worked for General Nutrition Distribution Center in Leetsdale, Pennsylvania after 33 years of service.  Upon leaving General Nutrition, Alice realized that she wasn’t quite ready for full time retirement and needed some children in her life (especially since her own are now full grown with families of their own).

She also has four grandchildren, two girls and two boys.  Alice loves to spend time with her grandchildren, but since they all are in the midst of their fun years she doesn’t see them as much.  Alice loves seeing the children as they grow throughout the years at Kidz Korner; it really is amazing that kids who started off small have grown so big and smart; sometimes it’s hard to believe!
