My name is Jacqueline. I grew up in Saint Louis, MO and I have lived in California on and off for the past six years. I moved to Telluride around a year ago. I have a bachelor’s degree in social work from the University of Missouri. In my spare time I like to read, travel, walk my dog, and garden. I have 7 years in childcare experience. I have been a live-in nanny, an ESL teacher, and a substitute teacher. I love working with children because I admire their optimism and enjoy the sense of humor they have to offer. I have worked with children of all ages, from infants to high-school age. I enjoy working with every age level because each offers its own unique experience.
My name is Shelby Sipperly and have been in Telluride a few years. I’m so excited to be here! A little about me: I’m in my 20’s and have been caring for children of all ages since I was around 13. I love kids, and try to form genuine bonds with each one I care for, no matter the age or disposition. My interests include hiking, skiing (though I’m not very good!), reading, writing, travelling (I just got back from spending a year in Australia), and enjoying this beautiful town we are lucky enough to be in. I am eager to be able to meet families new and old to Telluride this season and to engage with your kiddos!
Hello, I am Pam! I have lived in the Rocky Mountain and Intermountain west for over 40 years, and returned to Colorado in 2012. I have worked in the outdoors as a ski instructor and river guide, and as an RN for many years in all kinds of settings. I love spending time in the mountains and the desert canyons we are so lucky to have in our backyard, hiking, biking, skiing, and sometimes just sitting to watch the sunset. I like to introduce kids to the outdoors in whatever way is available and suitable at the time, and help them explore, learn, and have fun in this beautiful setting. I hope you have a wonderful time here in the San Juans, and look forward to taking great care of your children.

Greetings and salutations! Emma grew up in the dusty flats of West Texas dreaming of snowy peaks and fresh mountain air. Emma’s family often visited Telluride during the summer and winter, and after finishing her degree amongst the wheat fields in Walla Walla, Washington, she decided to make this lovely mountain town her home. During the day you can find her at the Children’s Ski School sharing her love of skiing with kids. If she’s not in the Enchanted Forest, she’s probably reading, cooking, planning her next adventure, or petting a random dog on main street.
