My name is Tierra Stanton, aka “Ms. T”. I have lived in New Braunfels all of my life and I am a lifelong member of St. Paul Lutheran Church. Both of my girls and I were baptized here. I love working with children. I started babysitting when I was a teenager and then worked in daycare until 2018. Five of those years were right here at St. Paul.
I left the daycare profession to work full-time with my second love, animals. I have worked with large and small, domestic, and exotic animals. I completed the Veterinarian Support Assistance course and Animal Behavior and Training course. In 2022 I made the decision to return to daycare so I could spend more time with my girls and asked to come back to St. Paul. I thoroughly enjoy working with the young minds and loving hearts of children and am blessed to be back with my St. Paul family.
I was born in Columbus Ohio and grew up just outside of the city in a small town that had a population of around 300. I believe that being raised in such a close community helped shape me into the person I am today. I’ve always loved working with children and helping others in any way I could. Growing up I would help out in my church’s food pantry, sell corn, work our youth program ‘God’s Kids’, and volunteered to work at the church garage sale every year. When I wasn’t at the church I was playing sports or babysitting. In high school I earned all of the necessary credits to graduate by my junior year so I spent the last two years taking college classes and extra curricular classes I was interested in. I worked part time at an in home daycare and was a nanny for a family friend in my free time. I graduated from Highland High School in 2018 and went on to take a year of early childhood education at Columbus State community college. While in college I worked a retail job as well as part time at a daycare. When Covid hit everything in my area was shut down for months and I decided then I wanted to make some changes in my life. I moved to New Braunfels in August of 2020 to be closer to family. Now that I have settled into my new home and found a job that I love I would like to continue my education and finish getting my ECED.
