My dedication to the lives of children and families is ongoing; it began at the age of fourteen as a summer camp counselor, leading to senior camp counselor and proudly growing into a camp director at the age of eighteen for children ranging from the ages 4 to 13. Ever since, I have dedicated my life to what I enjoy, teaching, babysitting, mentoring, and most importantly, helping children and families strive in their daily lives. I have 12+ years of experience teaching early childhood education, 5 of these years in special education and a total of 18 years in the field of; early childhood education,babysitting and creating individual at home plans for children and families based on their child's and families overall goals.
My passion consist of my love and driven heart for giving back to children and families the love, loyalty and ongoing compassion and positive environment I was given growing up by my family and mentors. If I can make a positive difference in someones life, especially in the lives of children and families, then I am happy. I am energetic, optimistic and am motivated by challenge. I put children and families first and honestly love what I do. At 36 years of age I could happily say I have maintain an ongoing successful relationship with the families at my school setting, babysitting and in the ongoing mentorship/sitter environment.
I enjoy exploring culture (languages/food) and incorporating child's strength and interest in our time together.I find the importance in successful childcare is always meeting the childs social emotional needs and leading with experience and passion while I currently teach in the Lower East Side/East Village and working privately with families and being of support to families by providing them with ease and excellence as part of my ongoing day to day life. I have experience coaching cooperative sports ( 4-11-year-olds for Madison Square Garden Liberty Kids) and consider sports and creative arts to be influential in childrens social/emotional growth. Educators and families describe my philosophy and ways of teaching/babysitting to be life changing in the most heartfelt and caring ways.
