Hello, my name is Melissa Garcia and I am the Director here at Rainbow Rising Alderwood. I have been with Rainbow since September 2011 and I have loved every minute of it! I am currently finishing my Bachelors degree in Child and Adolescent Development from Cal State Fullerton, as well as obtaining my site supervisor permit through the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing. I have been working with children ages 3-13 for many years now and love what I do. I have worked in both school and afterschool programs as well as tutoring and babysitting. I strongly believe in the importance of building bonds with each and every student and look forward to getting to know each child and their families through our program. I look forward to meeting you soon.
My name is Brittany Osborne. I am 26 years old, married, and have a cat that I adore named Franklin. I started working at Rainbow Rising College Park two years ago as a Kinder Master Teacher and then helped open Rainbow Rising Beacon Park. I graduated from California State University of Fullerton with a B.S. in Child and Adolescent Development with an emphasis in school-aged teaching. I love working with children and encouraging them to grow and learn daily. I am really looking forward to working with the families and children at Alderwood as your Director!
