My love for Cabin John/Brookmont Children’s Program started the day my daughter Katherine entered the nursery school.  With a newborn brother at home, and my maternity leave just beginning, she was introduced to a whole new world of preschoolers and teachers.  The excitement that she brought home each day from her explorations and activities made me appreciate even more the loving environment in which she was comfortable, nurtured and allowed to grow.  As she entered kindergarten, and my son Robert entered the program, I decided to change careers to more closely match my family’s needs, and I have continued teaching here for the past 23 years. I am grateful that I am still able to experience that excitement through the eyes of other preschoolers, many of whom are my neighbors in Brookmont, on a daily basis.

Sue Ann Morehead, Teacher

Experience: 10 years experience Family Daycare in Pennsylvania; 7 years experience as Teacher at Cabin John/Brookmont Children’s Program

In all honesty, I can’t remember a time I haven’t been around children. From growing up in a large family with many cousins, older and younger, to raising three children of my own and running a home daycare business for over ten years, children have always been a source of enjoyment and fulfillment in my life. Now that I have recently moved to the Washington DC area, I look forward to the next chapter of early childhood education and at the same time being closer to family in the Brookmont community.
