Amber Edwards, Director
Amber Edwards, Director

I started my career in the childcare industry right out of high school. Because of my experiences as a young mother, I knew that I wanted to work with children in my career too. I began in the After-School Program, soon transitioned to a Toddler classroom, and then received a promotion to Assistant Director. After three years as Assistant Director, I was offered the challenge of being Director. I absolutely love being a director and the different challenges the position brings on a day-to-day basis.

I am on the Advisory Board for West Georgia Technical College Early Childhood Care and Education, where I enjoy being able to share my passion for education in young children throughout the community. I am scheduled to graduate this fall with my Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education.

I have been married for seven years to my husband, Taylor, and we have three daughters together.

Hi! My name is Breanna Tarbush. I am the Preschool Director here at Mirror Lake Academy. I have worked in early education for 14 years, 11 of which have been with this company.

I live in Temple, GA with my Husband of 11 years and our amazing 8 year old daughter. I love spending time with my family, going to church, and vacationing at the beach. My daily objective is living a faith based life and serving God through this life we are given. Being able to watch children grow and learn is just an extra in this world we live in.

Alycia Clark, Assistant Director

Hi, my name is Alycia Clark. I am currently the Marketing Director at Mirror Lake Academy. I am a mother of 3 boys ages 10, 8, and 6. I have worked in early childhood education for 9 years. I am very dependable and dedicated in everything I do. I love to motivate and encourage others. I have always loved working with children and helping others reach their goals. Once I became a director, I feel I became a life changer. In my opinion, once you take on a leadership roll, you have the power to impact the lives of others.

My goal is to always make the best impact possible. I have learned in my 9 years of experience in early childcare that the first 5 years are the most important years in a child’s life. I get incredible joy seeing the difference I make as a child gain new insight on new ways to learn. Every day I plan to help mold the future for a better view and understanding through their little lives.
