Miss Ciera graduated from Coe College in Iowa with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and endorsements in History and Reading. She recently bought a house and married her husband David in July. Soon, she will add a new puppy to her family who was born on her wedding day! Before coming to Kids Express, Ciera was a Lead Infant Teacher at a previous center for three years. She has been with Kids Express since March of 2016, teaching in various classrooms over the years.


Ciera grew up with five sisters and two brothers. With so many siblings come lots of nieces, nephews, and cousins to babysit for and play with. As far back as she can remember, Ciera has loved taking care of them and helping her younger extended family learn about the world around them. She also has helped with Sunday school at her church, led youth and mission trips around the world, and was a nanny over the summers during high school.


On her days off you can find Miss Ciera baking and trying new recipes, antiquing, reading, doing photography, or binge watching Netflix shows with her husband. When she has time to travel, she heads to Iowa to be with family.
