My name is Tamara Hogsed and I am the Owner of Guardian Angel Academy.  I have worked in the Child Care industry for over 23 years. My degree is in Early Childhood and Family studies from the University of Washington (Go Huskies!). I am also a certified trainer for the state of Washington to teach 20 hour classes for entry level early childhood professionals, along with supplemental 10 hour continuing education hours for intermediate professionals.  I have been married for 25 years to my very best friend, and we have 3 amazing children together. Children are considered treasures to me and I take the responsibility of caring for children, staff and parents very seriously.  I love my job because each day is filled with learning, loving and growing.  I hope your time shared at our centers meets your expectations and brings a positive experience to your child’s life!

My names is Misty Carlson.  I am happily married to my best friend since 2004. We have a little slice of heaven just north of Spokane, that we spend most of the time at raising our three amazingly beautiful girls.  I have been with Guardian Angels since 2003. I have wore may hats through my journey here at Guardian and love to see the children that come in to our grown and florish. Many children are in child care most of their waking hours and I want to be an important part of making their environment safe, stable and nurturing.  I completed my Child Deveopment Associates Degree in 2010 through Blue Prints for Learning Program.  I believe we are all in this field for the children, and the families are here because this is a place where their children can learn, grow and develop at their own pace, while being supported every step of the way.
