Meet Shannon McCarthy: January Employee of the Month

We can’t think of a better teacher to kick off the new year with than Miss Shannon McCarthy. Miss Shannon is an infant teacher at our Orchard Park, NY location but she is much more to our team and to our families.

Shannon is an incredible teacher, mentor, and caregiver. She began at Doodle Bugs! as a Teacher Assistant and before long decided to pursue a Child Development Associate Credential (CDA) as a first step in growing into a Lead Teacher role.  During her journey, Shannon took on challenges with such a positive energy and a willingness to help others whenever and wherever needed.

Miss Shannon does an exceptional job delivering a personalized experience every single day.  We love how she acknowledges each child and is always sure to notice something about them, every time they arrive.  We admire how she thinks outside of the box, keeps curriculum happening throughout the day, displays child-made art, and incorporates songs during daily activities. It’s no wonder her peers and families admire the happy classroom environment she cultivates.
