Rebecca’s love for learning began during her own early childhood when, due to a lack of options in the small TN town she grew up in, her Mom decided to begin her early education at home. Little did she know this experience was building a foundation that would inspire her own learning and career goals. Rebecca has her Associate of Arts Degree with continuing education in Early Child and has enjoyed 11 years in the industry. She recently moved back to NC from SC where she served as an early childhood Director, Lead Teacher, and other child education roles.
Sandra has been working with children for over 35 years and has a degree in Early Childhood Education. Sandra believes children learn though play and agrees with the KRK philosophy that children should be loved unconditionally, and taught with kindness….. along with plenty of hugs. Sandra has been a nanny, provided in-home care for children, assisted in a PreK program in public school, and taught in a childcare center for 19 years. Sandra met her husband in middle school and has been married to him for 38 years. She has a son and a daughter, and 3 gorgeous granddaughters that she loves spoiling. If you spend enough time around Sandra you will know that she calls Pennsylvania home, even though she has lived in NC for 17 years, she is a tad obsessed with Disney World, and she loves spending time in Ireland where she wishes she could retire someday.
Amanda Benson serves as the newest addition to the KRK management team. After obtaining her degree in Education from NC State University, Amanda has spent the last 6 years in early childhood education. She chose KRK as her career because she loves the KRK motto, “Hug first, then teach”. She loves finding what makes each child unique and forming lasting bonds with her students and their families. "KRK offers a warm and fun environment that fosters a love for learning!". Amanda is from western NC and outside of work, she is a huge animal lover and owns 2 dogs (Jackson and Lana).
