Meet our Sea Turtle Teachers


       This special team will soon become your child’s favorite teachers!  Get ready for a wonderful year and fantastic SCC experience. We are absolutely thrilled and beyond blessed these ladies will be teaching and caring for our Seat Turtle children this year.  

       Ms. Ashely and Ms. Erika are an amazing team and bring all the magic, play, STEM, art, music and learning  to this 3-4 year old program.  Ms. Tristin is our rockstar Young Surfer teacher, and leads an older group of 3-4 year olds through their year of exploration, learning, pre-reading and pre-writing skills, and challenges these students each day with new science, art, math and dramatic play opportunities.

       This incredible Sea Turtle team will take their students on an adventure this year that will offer foundational learning and play opportunities while getting them emotionally, socially, academically and spiritually ready for their Pre-K experience next year.  

Ms. Ashley

     Our Wonderful Ms. Ashley is our Sea Turtle Coordinator that brings all the STEM, art and dramatic play to this program.  She has an innate gift with children and a contagious sweet spirit you will fall in love with immediately.  Ms. Ashley's students and parents adore her and treasure this special year they have her as their 3-4 year old teacher.  Ashley has her certificate in Early Child Development and has a passion for teaching this age group.  She has a fur baby named Lily and is happily married to her best friend, Josh. We don't know what we did before Ms. Ashley and we never want to do SCC life without her!

Miss Erika

      Ms. Erika is a sweet and fun-loving spirit who will bring joy and love to each student.  Her sweet and gentle ways and her contagious smile make her a beloved teacher for 3-4 year olds.  Ms. Erika graduated from The Master’s University with a bachelor’s degree in Liberal Studies.  She is happily married and they serve at church in the Junior High Ministry.  Ms. Erika loves to share her love for Jesus with her students and teach Chapel and bible stories.  She is a total gem of a human and we adore her at SCC!

Miss Tristin

Miss Tristin is so excited to teach your little ones this year as a Young Surfer teacher, ages 3-4 and a little older than other Sea Turtle students! She grew up in Huntington Beach and graduated from Marina high school. From there she earned her Early Childhood Education degree at Orange Coast College and is currently enrolled in the bachelors’ program at the University of Cincinnati. For the past two years, she has been a substitute at Surf City Christian and has loved every minute of it. She was drawn to Surf City Christian because of their faith-based curriculum and their dedication to children and families. Since the first grade she has dreamed of being an educator and is so blessed to be given the opportunity to start her teaching journey here. Besides her passion for early childhood education, she loves to go to the beach, spend time with family, and go hiking. She recently got engaged, so much of her free time involves wedding planning. She is looking forward to a great year!
