My name is Tamara Hogsed and I am the Owner and Director 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!

Director-Dishman Mica Campus

My names is Misty Carlson.  I was born and raised in Oregon, moved to Spokane in 2001.  I married my husband Michael in 2004, we have three daughters, all of whom attended Guardian Angels Academy and I have been been employed at Guardian Angels since 2003.  Although I have worked with every age group at Guardian Angels Academy, I have found my calling in the Pre-Kindergarten program.  It is in this age group that I get to be an intregal part of the children’s growth and development.  The children are in child care most of their waking hours and I wanted 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.
