Miss Mallary

Mallary accompanied her family to Post Falls at the age of two and is a Post Falls High School graduate. She attended North Idaho College for Business and did work for a bank for a time. Most of her career has been working with special needs adults (4 years) and “kid-oriented fun businesses” like candy stores, roller skating rinks and childcare centers.  Mallary’s two beautiful daughters, Mia and Leila, are now also at TLC Learning Center where they can be close to their busy mother. When she isn’t on the job, Mallary enjoys Jam Skating (dancing on skates), being outdoors and going on drives and making forts with her kids.

Miss Jada

Jada grew up in Kellogg, in the shadow of Silver Mountain! In 2017 she moved to Coeur d’Alene to attend North Idaho College. Because she liked to “do medical and kiddos,” Jada got her CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) at NIC and is currently enrolled to become a Registered Nurse with the goal of working in a pediatric medical office. Taking her position with TLC LC was a great incentive, she says, as she can work full-time, have her son Ryatt enrolled right along with her while doing schoolwork at night. Jada figures her RN is “a good two years away.”

Jada loves to hike, boat, paddle board, read, go camping and to knit.

Miss Andrea

Andrea has been with TLC Learning Center since April 2019. She attended Northwest Nazarene University where she studied Elementary Education. Andrea has worked with all ages of children but young kids hold a special place in her heart. Nothing makes her happier than watching young children grow! When she isn't working in the classroom, she loves volunteering at her church, camping with her family, fly fishing, DIY projects and exploring new coffee shops.

Miss Angelia 


Angelia was born in North Idaho and, though her parents took the family to live in Nampa when she was 4, she was happy when they returned a short time later!  Her academic years were mostly in private schools where she especially loved creative writing and art. She is looking forward to helping TLC LC students with art projects, too! (Adding to the fun, Angelia’s youngest child is a TLC LC student!) In her spare time, Angelia loves spending time with family, watching movies, and taking road trips
