Tim and Lisa Rizzo- Owners

Hello, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome your family to All About Kids Centerville. My name is Lisa Rizzo and my husband Tim and I are the owners of this state-of-the-art learning center. It is our longtime dream to work together with children. We have been married for 32 years and proudly raised two children. Our free time is spent being with family and friends.

Tim has dedicated his professional life to serving children as an educator. He has a master’s degree in Education (K-12) from Xavier University and has taught, coached and served as an administrator during his 26 plus years in education. My professional experience includes working in a medical critical care setting with children and adults for 25 years. I have an associate degree from The College of Mt. St. Joseph and hold an Early Childhood Development Certificate from Liberty University.

As the Executive Director, I am excited about the opportunity to begin working with your family. We fully understand the importance of providing a nurturing and educational environment for your children each day. My staff and I are continually working on developing and implementing curriculum that is both challenging and enjoyable. I look forward to being a part of your child’s personal growth and educational development.

Sam Shepherd- Bus Administrator/Front Desk Admin

Hi! My name is Sam Shepherd and I am the Transportation Administrator/Front Desk Administrator and part time bus driver.  I have been at the AAK Centerville location  for 4 years and I absolutely love being a part of this family.

My time with AAK began in room 1 with the infants and I have thankfully been given many opportunities to move up within the center.  I love that the administrative position gives me the ability to spend time with the children in the classrooms and get to know all of our families.

In my spare time, I can typically be found playing games with family, cuddling in front of the TV with my husband and dogs, crocheting and listening to music.

Welcome to the AAK Centerville family!

Ms. Megan M.- Lead Teacher Pre-Kindergarten

Hi! My name is Ms. Megan and I am the lead teacher for our Kindergarten classroom. I began working with the AAK Centerville family in May of 2017.

I graduated from Miami University with my Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education with a focus in Family Studies and Social Work.  While I was in school, I spent many hours working with toddlers and preschoolers at the YMCA.  I also spent a semester with a Head Start class of preschool children.  I did field work in first and second grade, as well as my student teaching.

My teaching philosophy is that the most important influence a teacher can have in the classroom is to foster a sense of community and encourage the bonds of relationships.

I love being the lead teacher in the Kindergarten classroom and I am so excited to work with your young children.

Hi! My name is Ms. Keighly and I am the lead teacher for the kindergarten class.  I began my journey with the AAK Centerville family in April 2017 as a closer for the pre-k 2 room, followed by being the assistant and then moving to the kindergarten room as the lead.

While studying ECC, I have done student teaching in both preschool and kindergarten classrooms.  I absolutely love working with children and I am so grateful for the opportunities I have been given at AAK.

I graduated from Miamisburg High School in 2013.  I then enrolled in Sinclair Community College.  I have worked in healthcare and nutrition services and earned my STNA.  After the birth of my son, I left the healthcare field and began my work in childcare.

I have two sons who both attend AAK Centerville.  When I am not at work, you will find me with my family, playing at the park with my boys or simply just being outdoors.

Welcome to the AAK Centerville location!
