Welcome to the Aprende Academy Pre-K family! My name is Rhiannon Joel, known to the children as Ms. Joel, and I will be your child’s teacher for the 2017-2018 school year. When I am not teaching, you can usually find me spending time with my own children, ages 21, 20, 16, and 13. More often than not, that time is spent at the basketball court or other sporting event.

I am a proud graduate of Cornerstone University in Michigan, where I spent 8 years working in the Detroit Public Schools Head Start program. I’ve spent the last 8 years continuing my love for educating young children at a small private school right here in Las Vegas. This is my 16th year teaching Pre-Kindergarten and I am ecstatic to make this the best year yet! I look forward to fostering a love for both school and learning in your child throughout the school year.




Hello all! My name is Mihaela Spiridon, I grew up in Romania-more precisely in Transilvania not far from Bran Castle also known as Dracula’s (Vlad the Impaler) Castle. I moved to Las Vegas 11 years ago and it was a wonderful decision. I do not miss the snow. I am beyond excited and honored to start this school year at Aprende Academy Pre-K. This is my second year working as a teacher’s assistant for Aprende and I truly enjoy it. I am currently working on my Bachelor’s Degree in ECE after transferring my credits from the University of Science Sibiu. I am intensely curious about the world and love learning new things, also driven by a deep desire to teach and help others.

I love spending time with my family. Their love and support is what keeps me going. I am a fan of the classic Italian tiramisu dessert. I enjoy drawing, painting, crafting and reading stories to my amazing children Sarah (8) and Matthew (5). I look forward to helping the little ones, explore their creativity and to succeed academically. This will be an amazing school year!
