About Me

Inspiration is always around me. It lives within my artistry and daily life and it’s what I like to bring to children. I like to introduce the incredibles: Edith Piaf and Lucille Ball into the mix. I love to guide them into believing in their inner genius; trusting that voice that says “Go for it!”

I am currently sitting for a little boy who has become one of my best friends. At times, he can be behaviorally challenging and I was taught various exercises to help balance his energy. I love to help children find what works best for them. I am always in good humor and I love to speak to parents so that we are all aligned in what kind of message or guidance I should provide. I love to read and write and I always find ways for children to enjoy everything they do.

The most incredible position I ever held was when I did clown care for the Big Apple Circus. It meant the world to me to be able to see children laugh and play, even while they were in pain. I love working with children because of the way that they see the world. They always believe and love so openly. They remind me to do the same.

Activities & skills I love to teach & share with children…

I love to teach children theater games like improvisation and movement based exercises. I love to teach them yoga, salsa, and music that involves the learning of cultures from all around the world. I will usually create an arts and crafts project like' the map of my dream world' where the children will make a map with paint, pictures, and words to create the map of their ideal world. This also helps get to understand the mind of the child and what world he/she creates within her thoughts. I love to play sports, I am a huge soccer and basketball fan. I am very active and happy to play sports with the children as well. I am also a writer and I am happy to help with any subject in homework. I am very patient when teaching and I love to practice new ways to reach the children in their learning process. I also love to cook. My mother is from Peru and she taught me how to cook delicious dishes. I am also happy to cater to the dietary needs of the child.
