Meet Our Directors & Teachers
Tish Spaulding, School Director
Hello! My name is Tish Spaulding and I am so excited to be here at Winwood Brambleton II. I have been part of the management team since 2011 at Winwood in Reston and South Riding. I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Child Development and an Associate’s degree in Early Childhood Education. I moved to the Northern Virginia area in January 2006, when I married my best friend. We have a dog named Marco, who we rescued over 10 years ago. In my spare time, I enjoy shopping, scrapbooking, crafting, and traveling to new places. I cherish the promise that uphold with Cadence Education - "Cadence Education provides parents with peace of mind by giving children exceptional education every fun-filled day in a place as nurturing as home."
Allison Grimmett, Assistant Director
I am super excited to join the team at Winwood Brambleton as your Assistant Director! I currently have my B.A. in Integrative Studies/Education from George Mason University and have over 15 years experience in early childhood education ranging from classroom teaching to management experience. My favorite thing about working with children is having the opportunity to watch them grow and develop. It’s inspiring to watch each child grow and know that I was fortunate enough to play a role in their learning and development through the years. I can honestly say that each day with children is a learning experience for me as much as it is for them!
I reside in Ashburn with my husband and three wonderful children who will also be attending Winwood Brambleton with me! Ava will be in the Junior Kindergarten program, Aubrey in the Preschool 2 program, and Austin in the Infant program! On the weekends, you can typically find me on the soccer field or gymnastics competitions with my oldest, but always enjoy relaxing with my family and starting new adventures!
Carolina Inchaustegui, Teacher
About Me: I have been with Winwood Brambleton since it first opened. This is like a second home to me. I love watching my babies thrive and seeing the rapid growth that occurs during their earliest years. I also enjoy spending time golfing with my husband over the weekends.
Lakshmi Kumar, Teacher
About Me: I am a friendly and loyal person who enjoys teaching and learning with the children. For me, the most important reward is the smiles and hugs from the little ones. In my spare time I like to travel and read. I have a Masters in English Literature and Journalism.
