Misty Camden was raised in Lexington, Virginia and attended the College of Charleston in South Carolina where she graduated Magna Cum Laude in 1999 with a B.S. in Elementary Education and a minor in Early Childhood Education. Misty began her career teaching special education at Rockbridge Middle School for a year and then transferred to third grade at Fairfield Elementary where she taught for three years. Misty was formally employed by Woods Creek Montessori where she worked for six years as the Summer Camp Director and Assistant to the Director. She lives in Lexington with her family: husband Kris, who is a general contractor, and their two children, Zoe and Kohen.
Amy grew up in Charlotte, NC. She received a B.A. in English from Wofford College in 1993, an M.A. in English from Winthrop University in 1994, and a Masters in Teaching (M.A.T.) from Queens University in 1997. After teaching at the elementary and preschool levels in Charlotte, Amy relocated to Lexington with her family in 2014. Her first foray into Rockbridge County’s early childhood world was as a substitute teacher at Yellow Brick Road. From 2015-2019, Amy taught in the classroom at Shenandoah Preschool and was a children’s yoga teacher at Yellow Brick Road, EarthSong, and the Rockbridge County Public Schools After-School Enrichment Program. Amy comes to Yellow Brick Road from an administrative support roll with the Office of Community-Based Learning and the Roger Mudd Center for Ethics at Washington and Lee University. In her spare time, Amy teaches yoga at Center of Gravity in downtown Lexington and enjoys reading, taking exercise classes, hiking, volunteering with Live Healthy Rockbridge Kids, and hanging out at home in Rockbridge County with her husband, Cliff, and their three rescue dogs. Amy’s most cherished vocation, however, has been parenting their two children, Ella and Luke, graduates of Rockbridge County High School who enjoy occasional visits home from college (not enough for mom, but plenty for them!).
