Cori joined our team as the Head of Adult Services in the summer of 2022. With her numerous years assisting the public and involvement in the community, she is the first smiling face that people see when they walk through our doors. In April 2023, the TCCN Board of Directors appointed her as the new Executive Director of TCCN. We are excited for her new role and looking forward to how she leads TCCN into the future!

Angel's years of experience are evident in her skilled and warm interactions with our preschool and young school-age children. Angel fills a number of critical roles at TCCN, including a floater teacher and Preschool Aide but the one she enjoys the most is the care and education of preschool children. Her willingness to go above and beyond for children and TCCN is so appreciated!
AFTER SCHOOL TEACHER
Diane is our After School teacher, in charge of our rambunctious big kids, ages 6-12 years old. Diane has over 10 years experience in a childcare setting, 7 of those being a Director of an After School program in Washington. She is brand new to the Burney area, but says she loves the area already. She loves to spend time with her 2 corgis, her husband, 3 children and 2 grandchildren. She has spent her time thus far building relationships with the kids, asking what activities they would like to see in our program and planning fun days such as "Cooking Fridays". We are excited to have her with us!
