Ms. Miracle Wigfall
Center Director - Katy
Hello families! My name is Miracle and I’m so excited to be your Center Director. I am from Houston, Texas and I graduated from Katy High School in 2009. I continued my education at Prairie View A & M University where I studied Early Childhood Education. From there, I began my career in childcare, working with all age groups and eventually taking a position as administrator. I earned my CDA in 2015 and gained my director's credentials in March of 2021.
My favorite thing about working with children is seeing them grasp and gain understanding of the concepts we teach. I am dedicated to nurturing the academic and social growth of each child under my care.
My philosophy is children learn best when the learning environment is designed to meet the developmental needs of each child individually , one that encourages exploration, creativity, and independence. I am dedicated to providing the best experience for our families.

Ms. Deanna Perry
Assistant Director - Katy
Hello families! My name is Deanna. I’m the assistant director at the location in Katy. I’m excited to be
here at first steps and getting to know you guys. I was born in Houston and raised in Katy. I have been in
childcare for 4 years, I started off in a classroom as an assistant teacher and worked my way up. Now I
am working on getting my CDA. My favorite thing about working with children is watching them learn
and grow, I love seeing when their lightbulb goes off and they get ideas or to figure something out. I
look forward to serving our families and helping our children grow.

purpose of satisfying it afterwards” – Anatole France
Ms. Rosalyn Elias
Center Director - Barker Cypress
Hello everyone! I am so excited to be here with you. I have had the pleasure of being taken in as part of the wonderful family here at First Steps. Originally from Kansas, I moved with my family to Houston over 23 years ago. I received my Associate's Degree from Houston's own HCC and received my Bachelor Degree from Columbia College. I have been an early childcare educator for over 16 years and received my Director's credential in September of 2022.
I love working with children and the joy I get from being an intricate part of our families' village. It always fills my heart with joy to witness a child's rapid transformations and growth.
My door is always open-please feel free to contact me at the center anytime.
