Honey Motley

Owner, Director & Lead  Teacher

Honey was born and raised in Berkeley, California and has been living in Oregon since February 2020. She stayed in Eugene for the surrounding nature, her quaint little neighborhood and all the kind people she has met here. The 3rd out of 5 siblings, she has been working with children since she can remember. Babysitting at just 13 years old is where her passion for working with young children started. After babysitting and being a nanny in her teenage years, she began her career by becoming a teacher at a Reggio Emilia preschool in 2015. This is when she found her absolute purpose and passion for teaching small children. One of her greatest joys is watching young ones explore life through love, nature, mindfulness and the little miracles of the world. She is so grateful that she has the opportunity to watch children grow and learn everyday. Honey has been working with young children in Reggio Emilia settings for quite a few years and has loved the process of creating a program of her own! Honey also enjoys yoga, meditation, creating art, thriving in the kitchen, gardening and many other activities that build her knowledge on this beautiful world. 



Rachel Reyes

Assistant Teacher

Like the big sister we always wanted, Rachel is the life of our little party. Always in good spirits and ready to play. She helps with every aspect of The Honeybee Home and we wouldn't be where we are today if it wasn't for Rachel. Her ability to connect with every child is admirable and doesn't go unnoticed. Her experiences as a nanny, working with children who have disabilities and her work with foster children made her the perfect fit for all The Honeybee Home needs. Beginning with us in early 2023, Rachel proved her skills with children from the very start. We are so grateful for her positive and loving presence here everyday. 


Alejandra Morales

Assistant Teacher

Alejandra, or Aly as the Honeybees call her, is the calm, quiet spirit that we always needed. She takes charge where needed but most of the time she is deeply invested in the observation of every interaction of the children.  A gentle soul made for early childhood education, Aly is always a busy bee and trying her hardest to help The Honeybee Home run smoothly with exceptional cleaning skills and the ability to work out every situation calmly, with such grace. The little honeybees love to talk her ear off and she listens to every word, emotion and intent with patience in the present moment. We are so grateful that Alejandra has joined our little family of love.
