Candi Robinson
Candi Robinson, Assistant Director

My name is Candi Robinson. I am a wife and mother of two young adult children whom I adore. Plus I have two small dogs, Dwight and Molly, that I love.  In my spare time I like to read, go to the gym, cook, and sew.  I never start my day without a LARGE cup (or three) of coffee and I have a weakness for all things chocolate.  I have been teaching preschool at Little Blessings for nine years.  I love the emerging personalities, curiosity, genuineness, and joy that the young people in my classes bring each day.

Hello! My name is Emily Shaffer and I am the On Site Director for our recently opened Little Blessings Plaza Campus. This is my first year being on Little Blessings staff and I couldn’t be more excited! I moved to Colorado from Nebraska, where I was born and raised (GO BIG RED!), in the summer of 2007. Before moving to Colorado, I worked in a K-12 Special Education classroom for 5 years. After moving to Colorado, I taught Pre-K in Highlands Ranch for 6 years. Our first child, a daughter, was born in 2012 and as a family, we decided that I would stay home with her. In 2014 our second child, a son, was born. I enjoy gardening, college football and camping with my family. My family and I have been members of PUMC since 2009 and I also served on the SPR Committee for PUMC for 2 years. I am so excited to be working with children and family again after taking a 3.5 year break! I look forward to getting to know all the Little Blessings families and working with your children!
