Gabby Weaver

I am Gabriela Weaver.  I am 20 years old and started at Kinder-Haus in July of 2022.  I was born in Guatemala and was adopted at the age of three.  I have four brothers and one sister.  I attended a private Christian school through seventh grade, and homeschooled for 2 years.  Then I went to Pequea Valley 10-12th grade, graduating in 2021.  While taking some child development classes I knew I wanted to work with children one day. I had also studied cosmetology and was very torn about what to pursue.  In the end, child care won out and I am so grateful for that.  I have never felt so much fulfillment in working with children.  Coming into work and seeing them light up makes me so happy.  My family has said I have definitely found my calling.  I have never felt happier than I am right now working here and working with these amazing staff members who feel like family.

Outside of work I fill my time with taking dance at Cavod Academy and spending time with my family, especially taking care of my two little nieces. (Payton, 3 and Harper 1) By caring for them I have developed such a love for kids.   I like to traveling, exploring new places, working out and kayaking.  

By working at Kinder-Haus I have been able to pour out my love as I help children to grow.  I am very grateful to be a part of their lives!  “We will not hide them from their children, showing to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, and his strength, and his wonderful works that He has done.” Psalm 78:4G
