Crystal Guffey, Lead Teacher 4's & 5's

Crystal Guffey moved to the Las Vegas area when she was a junior in high school. She met her husband Tim when she was 21 while working part time and working toward a degree in Early Elementary Education. In November of 2001 Tim and Crystal were blessed with their first daughter Kileigh and in February 2004 they were blessed with Carissa. When Kileigh was preschool age, Crystal found Little Lambs. She began volunteering in her class and fell in love with Early Childhood Development. CrystaI became a substitute teacher and then a teacher. She was a part of the Little Lambs family for 6 years until her health and circumstances got in the way. In January of 2016 Crystal's great nieces, Brooklyn (4) & Rylee (3) joined her immediate family. Watching them grow and teaching them made her realize just how much she missed Little Lambs. "Little lambs was a passion of mine and I am so very happy to be back. I really enjoy being a part of the learning and growth from toddler age and preparing them for kindergarten. I feel this age is the most important in setting them up for the rest of their life and I'm so happy that I get to make a difference and be a part of it."

All three of Gayle's kids Jarad, Breann, & Jacob attended Little Lambs and are now 21, 19 and 17. She has a Bachelors from Penn State University in marketing and is continuing her education in Early Childhood Development. Since her babies are now becoming young adults and she heard Little Lambs was looking for teachers she jumped at the opportunity. "I look forward to working with your kids and watching them grow towards elementary school."
