I am the oldest of 5 siblings! I always loved being a big sister and watching over my siblings as we were growing up. I attended Borough of Manhattan Community College where I studied Early Childhood Education.
Since I was a little girl, I've always told myself that when I grow up, I want be a teacher. I would pretend that my room was a classroom and that my siblings were my students. Growing up, I was babysitting for my aunts and uncles. After high school, I took an opportunity to go out to California and work at a camp with kids who have special needs. The kids were 5 to 13 years of age and I was working from sunrise to sunset everyday. I set up breakfast, lunch and dinner and also had to distribute medication. The days were kept filled with summer activities such as swimming, fun games, and playing outside. After college, I became a mentor at BMCC to the students who had a learning disabilities. I attended classes with the students and helped out with classwork and homework. While I was a mentor, I was babysitting for a 4 year old boy with a speech delay. I did simple meal and snack preps and would read, sing, and play with him. I also nannied for another 4 year old boy and 6 year old girl. I was with them for about two years. I would pick them up from school, do some homework, bathe them, and prep them a light meal. In 2018, I had my son. It took me about two months to realize I wanted to get back to work. I started working for the Department of Education, where I worked in a middle school classroom. My most recent work has been as a Teacher's Assistant in a classroom of infants and toddlers. My duties include diaper changing, making bottles, feeding them if needed, and prepping lunches. I am also all about play and fun activities!
I love spending time with children. I believe in being imaginative and creative. I do my best everyday to be fun and find a new adventure. My goal is to keep a smile on the children's faces and I love knowing that I have the ability to keep them happy. It keeps me going!
I also love the quote that Dr. Seuss once said, "A person's a person, no matter how small".
