Leslie Granillo, Director/Teacher
I began working in the child care field in 1996 & I have been with TTT since 1999. Conservation is important to me, so I encourage recycling & the use of recycled materials in the center. I hold a certificate in Early Childhood Education & received my AS degree in Child Development in 2013, graduating from Skyline College Magna Cum Laude.
I'm married & have two sons & a daughter. In my spare time I enjoy cheering on my kids in baseball, soccer & basketball, watching my daughter dance, crafting & sewing. I am CPR & First Aid Certified and hold a Site Supervisor permit from the California Commission On Teacher Credentialing.
Brigette Gauthier, Assistant Director/Teacher
I started working with children in 1989 but took a break to start a family and be a stay at home mom. I volunteered at Ortega school for many years, in 2010 when a position opened up at TTT I jumped at the chance to get back into the field! It was the perfect way to get back to doing something I really enjoy and still be close to my kids who also attended Ortega at the time. I have taken classes at Skyline in Early Childhood Education and am still continuing my education.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my two kids, going to Blackberry Farm, watching football and attending Paint Nite's with my friends. I am CPR and First Aid Certified.
Amy Albera, Preschool Teacher
I have been working with children since 1996 when my twin sister and I started a babysitting business, I began working at TTT in 2006. I studied ECE at Skyline to work in a child care center. One day I would like to work with special needs children or in a special education classroom. I currently work mainly in our preschool program but do help out in the school age when needed.
I am married and in my spare time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, cooking, baking, I play Bocce ball, and go to a lot of Giants games.
I am CPR and First Aid certified.

Danielle Finneman, Preschool Teacher
I have been with TTT since 2019, but have worked with kids since 2010. I love working with children and that there are always opportunities to learn and I feel it's important to appreciate that families come in all different forms and to respect everyone's different cultures. I have 39 ECE units, my ECE certificate and a BA in Liberal Arts and English. I am also a Spanish tutor.
When I am not working I love doing arts and crafts, taking walks with my wife and dogs, going camping and playing video games.
I am CPR/First Aid certified.

In my spare time I enjoy going to basketball games, concerts, the beach, movies and most importantly spending time with my family.
I am CPR and First Aide certified.
