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.

Giana Hernandez, Assistant Teacher

I started working with kids in 2012 as a nanny to

two kids and started with TTT in 2019. I love

working with kids because of their innocence

and they never fail to make me smile with the

funny and honest things that they say; I like that

I can be a positive influence in their lives.

I am currently attending SF State after getting

my AA degree in psychology at Skyline College.

In my free time I like to go to the beach, paint,

draw and spend time with my family and friends.

 

 

 


Reem Bercasio, Aide

I have been working with kids since 2014 and started with TTT in 2019. I love how honest and open-minded children are. I try to set a good example so I can help to shape them to be the best person they can be. I am currently pre-nursing student at SF State with a focus on pediatrics.

When I am not working I enjoy playing softball, baking and anything related to music.

 

 

 


Daria Myakonkova, Aide

I started working with kids in 2013 at an after school program and started with TTT in 2019. I have always been interested in helping others learn and grow; when I started working with kids I realized there is no better way to do that while still having fun. Being able to bring joy to children is very fulfilling. I am currently working on my BA in Creative Writing with a minor in Criminal Justice. When I am not working with kids I enjoy reading, playing with my puppy, watching movies or going to the beach.
