Paula Stanley is the site director and owner for Your Kids’ Place at Little Elementary.  She has been working with children for 20 years.  Paula is an energetic, creative, and fun teacher.  She is the proud mother of 3 children and she has 5 wonderful grandchildren. She carries this love for children over into her job. Education is her number one priority with homework help and brain based activities.  She goes above and beyond the call of duty. Paula’s favorite time of year is March. It is a month she dedicates to Dr. Seuss where she makes the books come alive!  She checks in with school staff to make sure the kids, in her program, are doing well and if there are any ways she can help support them emotionally and educationally.  She also makes sure every kid is accepted for whom they are and what their needs are.  Some of the children have followed her from a previous school.  This is a compliment and reflection of her dedication to the kids and her program.  Paula is a great role model for our future leaders!
