Shanika Jones
  • Associate's of Arts Degree in Early Childhood Education from Dalton State

I’d like to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Adrian Catlin and I am so excited to be a part of the Childcare Network family! I am looking forward to a very productive and exciting year at #168. While attending Dalton State, I worked as a teacher in classrooms from 6 weeks to 12 years old. This is when I realized that I wanted to be a teacher. I have lived in Ringgold GA for 30 years and love the community! Chattanooga is only 25 minutes from my home. I really like the city and never get bored because there are so many things to see and do. I have two children ages 15 and 20. My son attended Childcare Network as an infant and both of my children attended GA Pre-K program at Childcare Network. I was very happy with Childcare Network as a parent and look forward to leading Childcare Network #168 as a director. One of my goals is to become the most popular school in my area by filling my classrooms with happy children!! I want all families ecstatic with the care their children receive from us; I intend to accomplish this by providing the best Early Childhood Education. I look forward to spreading joy every day at #168. Whether it be happy students or happy staff, I look forward to seeing a slew of smiles walk through the front door each and every morning; hearts filled with the desire to be here, to be successful, and to have pride in what they are accomplishing. I am most excited about meeting the children and families enrolled in my center. Please do not wait for formal conferences to discuss any concerns you have with me. My door is always open!
