Ceppy Neal & Norma Canchola


Hi Everyone,

My name is Concepta Neal, but most people call me Ceppy.  I have been in the states for 20 years and I am originally from Ireland.  I moved to Aspen in the year 1998, where I got a job at the T Lazy 7 Ranch and it was there that I met my husband, David Neal.  We have been married for 11 years and have a son named Aiden who is 81/2 years old and attends Aspen Elementary School. While Aiden attended The Cottage Preschool,  I started volunteering to help the classes out.  From there, I was asked to be a substitute teacher for the toddler room when one teacher went on maternity leave.  I loved it from the start and felt so lucky when I was hired on full time for the 2013-2014 school year.  I am so happy to be an Early Childhood Educator and absolutely love being part of this community where I grow every day with all your darling Kiddos and my  co-teachers, amazing Director, assistant and District that helps you shoot for the stars!  I continue to persue my Early Childhood Education and  being the best Pre-School teacher I can possibly be. I look forward to spending the year ahead and what it will bring as The Cottage Team heads into a new and exciting start!
