Background: Hello there! I’m Vanessa Toevs (pronounced Taves) and I am SUPER EXCITED to be working at Sprouts Preschool, teaching and loving your little ones. I grew up in Boise, ID and attended the University of Idaho (Go Vandals!) where I  graduated with a degree in School and Community Health Education and a minor in Physical Education. I spent a number of years living in New York where I worked at Cornell University as a Custom Programs Manager for their Executive Education Department.

I have a wonderful husband-Ian, and two awesome kids- Hudson, who will be a first grader this year, and Evelynn, who will be a preschooler at Sprouts. I love exercising, baking (those two cancel each other out), reading, playing outside, and social gatherings (especially if there is food involved).

What I like most about the Sprouts Preschool: Everyone is so kind and welcoming.

Favorite Movie: The Goonies

Aha Moment: Becoming a mother.

Book I would recommend: East of Eden by John Steinbeck
