Meet the Director

Samantha Avila - EDucation director - CINCO RANCH

Samantha Gomez

Hello! My name is Samantha, and I am excited to introduce myself as the Center Director here at Ivy Kids Cinco Ranch. I am thrilled to have been with Ivy Kids of Cinco Ranch for 8 years.

My first role here was as an assistant teacher, from which I progressed to working in a lead position, and then front office administrator and then Education Director.

I have 2 beautiful daughters, Milah (9) & Selena (5), who have both attended Ivy Kids since they were infants. I graduated from Lonestar College where I obtained my Associates in Science and later my Child Development Associates. I enjoy photography, home decor, watching movies, and spending time with my family and friends.

One of the aspects I love most about Ivy Kids is the growth that happens every day from the children to the staff. I am excited to be part of this journey helping our teachers succeed in the classrooms with our amazing IvyPrep Curriculum.

Every day is a new day for further learning and development, and I am looking forward to every minute of new growth! We are honored to have each family here as part of our Ivy Kids family.

Svetlana Boyle

Hi everyone! My name is Svetlana Boyle, but my Ivy Kids family calls me Miss. Lana. I have worked at Ivy Kids Cinco Ranch for almost 8 years.  I started out as a Teacher Assistant in Pre-School classes and later became a Lead Teacher in Pre-K.

Originally from Uzbekistan where I graduated from Nursing School, I moved to the US 8 years ago, discovering my true passion to teach children. In 2020 while working at Ivy Kids, I earned my Child Development Associate certification. I have also worked in the local district with SPED children. What I love most about the Ivy Kids multiple intelligence curriculum is that kids learn through an active learning method.

When I am not working, I love to spend time with my family and friends, ride my bike, work in the garden, watch movies and read books.
