​A place where children's minds and bodies can grow

Michael Vogel "Coach BoBo"

 Summer Camp Lead Teacher


Ciera is from Denver, NC and currently lives in Greensboro with her husband and pet dog, Cooper. She graduated from UNCG in 2015 with a BA in Psychology and a double minor in Dance and Human Development and Family Studies. 

One of the many reasons she loves working at Sprouts is because it is such a supportive environment that most of the time, it doesn't even feel like work! The kids at Sprouts are amazing and I cherish the time we spend together. 

Her hobbies include dancing, reading, and watching Netflix. She certainly encourages her students to give it their all and never hold back. She hopes to instill her love of music and arts in her Sprouts children, while strengthening their abilities in their core classes. We are excited about the new attributes Ciera is bringing to Sprouts!

Meet the Staff

Travis was raised in Elizabeth City, North Carolina although he is originally from Hawaii. He went to UNCG and majored in Physical education, receiving a Bachelor of Science degree.


He started teaching in 2003 (the same year he married Kelly) and found a way of incorporating music into his teaching methods. Travis received his National Board Certification in Physical Education in 2010. He has coached several sports and has run several sports camps for kids ranging in age from 5-15 years old. He currently coaches the special teams for the SWHS football team. He LOVES it!! 

Travis enjoyed teaching and coaching at the secondary level for the past 10 years, but he currently teaches physical education at Kirkman Park Elementary School in High Point and he is loving the little kids! Travis works at Sprouts 1-2 days a week during the school year and every day during summer camp.

The kids LOVE Coach T!!

Kia is our ball of sunshine! She is originally from Columbia, SC, but now lives in Greensboro. She has two brothers and a very handsome little nephew. They are obsessed with this bundle of joy! 

Kia is working with our youngest students at Sprouts and all of her experience with her younger brother has come in handy. She relates well to the children, but also has firm boundaries in place. She has taken the time to get to know the students and has adjusted her teaching style accordingly. 

While she is not at Sprouts, Kia enjoys sports, shopping and baking. She is presently a student at GTCC seeking her degree in education.

Her motto is “We were made to be awesome, so that’s what we will be!” Her kind spirit and bubbly personality will capture your hearts!

Carolyn grew up in New Jersey (at the shore) and has three brothers. She moved to North Carolina in 1999 to attend the University of North Carolina @ Greensboro and obtained her degree in Elementary Education. Upon graduation, she began her teaching career with Guilford County Schools. 

She taught elementary school for ten years. She has taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade as well as tutored students in Pre-Kindergarten-8th grade. Carolyn earned her National Board Certification for General/Middle Childhood in 2008. She obtained her Masters Degree in School Administration at the University of North Carolina in 2011. Carolyn is married to Trevor and she is the stepmother to a beautiful girl, named Rhyan, and gave birth to their adorable son, TJ in January 2016.

Carolyn has a passion for teaching. Sprouts is a way for her to share her knowledge and teaching expertise with a vast array of children. Kids love her outgoing personality and her caring nature. Carolyn has inventive and clever ways of making every learning experience enjoyable and exciting for children of all ages! 

Kelly grew up in northern New Jersey and has a younger sister, and a super cute nephew, that attends Sprouts. She moved to North Carolina at the start of her high school career and attended Western Guilford. For college, she studied Exercise and Sports Science at The University of North Carolina @ Greensboro.

After graduation, she began her teaching career with Guilford County Schools. She taught kindergarten through 5th grade Physical Education for ten years. She also tutored literacy and math students in K-2nd grade. Kelly has coached High School Softball and Lacrosse for six years. She earned her National Board Certification for Physical Education in Early/Middle Childhood in 2007. She graduated in 2009 with a Master’s in School Administration from Appalachian State University. Kelly is married to Travis and they have two daughters, Naia and Nori, who both attend Sprouts (and believe they run the place). 

One of Kelly’s greatest teaching strengths is her ability to sneak academics into her physical education classes without any of the kids realizing it. She relates well to her students. She is creative and able to make learning relevant for kids. She has a wealth of knowledge about health and fitness and is excited to have the opportunity to influence children about how to be healthy and fit in a fun way!
