Our Teachers

"Together may we give our children the roots to grow and the wings to fly."
Jessica Richmond

My name is Miss Jess.

I was born and raised in Bad Herzfeld, Germany where I have worked with children privately and in a school setting. 

I've lived in Virginia since 2010 and have served as a full time nanny to 3 children, I've worked in a children's STEAM center called Engineering for Kids. 

Me, my husband David and our son Oliver currently live in Triangle, VA on our little homestead with our 2 dogs, 1 cat, 2 bunnies and 15 chickens. Yes, we have quite a few animals here. 🙂

This will be my third year teaching here at Alpha-Bet and every day has been a joy. I am currently working on earning my CDA credentials and hope to be able to complete this mission before the end of the year. 

I am looking forward to meeting you all! 

Lisa Olson

My name is Lisa Olson and I have been a part of the Alpha-Bet family since 2018, first as a parent and board member. 


Our family loved our time here and I am so excited to be a part of the Alpha-Bet community again this year!

I live in Manassas with my husband (Oliver), our 2 littles ones (Kairi & Felix), and our dog (Kuzco).  When I’m not working I enjoy reading, crafting, and spending time with my family.

I have worked in the Early Childhood field for over 10 years, both as a teacher and administrator.  Besides my vast experience in the field, I also have a Bachelor’s degree in Human Development & Family Studies. 

I can’t wait to learn more about your child and work with all of the families at Alpha-Bet to provide the best start to your child’s education!
