Lindsay Powell


Hi, my name is Miss Lindsay, and I have worked at Kindernest for only a few weeks. I chose to work at Kindernest because I love kids and want to one day be an elementary school teacher. Outside of Kindernest, I go to school at Northwest Vista College to get my basic towards my teaching degree. For fun I enjoy Bowfishing, panting, reading and taking drives around the Hill Country.

Tiffany Sanchez


Hello, my name is Tiffany Sanchez. I was born and raised here in Fredericksburg. I absolutely loved growing up in Fredericksburg and I knew I would eventually want to move back. 

After graduating high school, I moved to San Angelo where I attended Angelo State University. I got my bachelors degree in early childhood education. I always knew growing up I wanted to work with children, and what better way than become a teacher! While going to school, I was able to find a job at a daycare facility where I could get even more experience working with children! 

After graduating Angelo State, I decided it was time to move back home. I moved home in March of 2015, and a few months later saw Kindernest was hiring. I started working at Kindernest in August of 2015 and have been here since! I am one of the 4 Pre-K teachers and I love teaching Pre-K. I absolutely love working at Kindernest! It is the best job I have had throughout my life. All the people I work with are some of the nicest people I know and I consider them all my family! I am truly blessed to be a part of this amazing school! 

When I am not working at Kindernest, I love spending time with my family and friends! Getting to spend time with family is one of my favorite things to do. I also love shopping, being outside, and reading.
