Director: Teri M.
Teri is the Director at New Creations Lexington at Blaine. She began her career with New Creations in 2014 at the Andover location where she was both an Infant and Toddler Teacher. She was promoted to the Assistant Director at Andover in 2017 and transferred to Brooklyn Park as the Director in June of 2018. In 2019 with the opening of the newest Lexington location, she was the perfect choice to lead this center. She lives with her husband, two kids and three dogs in Blaine where they have lived for over 20 years. When she has spare time, she enjoys photography and spending time with family and friends. She would love to retire some day and run a rescue foundation for all types of animals. Teri believes that teachers of young children can help them explore and learn new things every single day. Watching their eyes light up is one of the most rewarding parts of her day!

Infant 1: Ms. Lauren
Ms. Lauren has been with New Creations since July of 2018. She is a current graduate from Hennepin Tech with a degree in teaching. She is the oldest in her family as well as the oldest grandchild and has spent her whole life around children. She found her passion for teaching at an early age when she came along side her brother and helped him with his learning disability. Her favorite quote is “I don’t teach for an income; I teach for an outcome." She currently resides in Forest Lake with her Fiancé, stepson, and a very spoiled cat named Lily. She is excited to welcome a new baby this coming year as well. In her free time, she enjoys going to the racetrack or doing anything outdoors.
Toddler 1: Ms. Breanna
Breanna is our Lead Teacher in our Toddler 1 room. She was born and raised in Minnesota and has a beautiful 3-year-old boy. She is a single mom and enjoys every moment with her son. Breanna knows some basic Spanish and would love to learn American Sign Language in her free time. Her interests include attending church events, dance and she even loves to bake. New Creations is so thankful for Breanna; the Toddlers have thrived since she joined our team!
Preschool 1: Ms. Taylor
Taylor is our Lead Teacher in Preschool 1! She graduated in 2014 from Centennial High School and moved to Ely, MN to continue school at Vermilion College. She played basketball, volleyball and softball, for VCC but was also involved in countless activities like; RA events, Female Weightlifting, Psychology Circle and many others. When she graduated, she obtained her AA in Liberal Arts and Applied Science, Coaching Certification and EMR certification! Caring for people has always been a passion of Taylor’s, but early on in her career she was a certified nursing assistant, sales associate, waitress, and a nanny. She feels that all those jobs have given herself some good qualities and led her to this teaching role. Taylor comes from a large family and being the caretaker is in her blood. In her spare time, she loves spending time with family, friends and pets, travelling, watching movies, playing sports/exercising, reading and painting. She is truly looking forward to her time here at New Creations!
