Erica Pitrack, Director
Stacey Singleton, Assistant Director
I have a B.S. in Music Education-Instrumental from South Carolina State University, over 14 years of experience in Early Childhood Education, and 2.5 years of experience and counting as an Assistant Director. My love for education and children brought me to where I am now… with you! Seeing children and teachers grow, set goals, and attain them just warms my heart.
On a fun note, I love the beach, my two boys (Kenny and Justin), and trying new recipes. I’m working on traveling to all 50 states with my children. We have conquered about 15 so far. I’m so excited and happy to be here with you!
Ms. Maria, Teacher
I have been a member of the Gateway Academy-McKee Family since 2006 and I'm the Toddler 1 Teacher. I have my NC Credentials and have been working in early childhood education since 1999. I am also a mentor to new teachers in our toddler program.
Ms. Margaret, Teacher
I received my Early Childhood Education, Lead Teacher Certificate, and Administration 1 & 2 from Wheelock College and I have worked with children for over 30 years. I believe education is best learned through love and exploration. I teach by structure, responsible child independence, and we are constantly praising one another.
The love I have for children and people makes my heart rejoice. I am a proud wife, mother, and grandmother. I engulf myself with family and enjoy their time everyday.

In my free time, I like to go to the gym, spend time with my family, and try new restaurants around the Charlotte area. I have two children: Sam and Katelyn.
