Hi, my name is BeckySue Lopez and I am the School Age Child Care Program and Preschool Manager here at Ralph Moody Elementary School. I have been in the child care field a very long time. I graduated from a program that is now called Teacher Cadet in 1978, the same time I graduated from Englewood High School. That’s right, I am a local girl. My first certification to teach in a child care setting was in Infants and Toddlers and I have been working my way up in age. Our program now accepts children from 3 years of age up to 12 years. I received my Directors Certification from the Colorado Department of Human Services in 1993. I worked as an assistant director for several years before taking on the position of director here at Ralph Moody in July of 1997. I am fortunate to be surrounded by many great mentors who are also my co workers. I enjoy learning something new from the children; they make everyday exciting and fun.
