About me

I have always loved working with children. I began learning about childcare at an early age from my grandmother, who was a neonatal nurse. As I've grown, I have been afforded the opportunity to work with children in many capacities and consider mentoring and childcare as an important aspect of my future goals. I began working with the YMCA organization at the age of 17. Through the YMCA I had the opportunity to work with children from many different backgrounds and experiences, including children with various forms of special needs and children from vast social and cultural backgrounds. I was afforded the opportunity to work as assistant to the summer camp director and was also entrusted with creating an entirely new summer dance camp. I have spent the last year devoting my time to childcare in a Montessori environment. Most recently, I served as an Associate Teacher in a Nido (Infant) classroom at an arts-based Montessori preschool in Atlanta.

Along with childcare, I hold a BFA in dance from Fordham University/Alvin Ailey and teach many forms of dance to children of all levels. My ultimate dream is to create a dance program that provides world class dance training to underprivileged children in many different parts of the world. I have also volunteered in churches teaching dance and mentoring young girls. I was afforded the opportunity to study abroad in Ghana, West Africa in the summer of 2014. While there, I had the chance to work in The Working Boys Orphanage. I love being creative and helping children to tap into their creativity and vast imaginations at any age!

I will be SmartSitting while...

Dancing. Whether I am rehearsing, performing, or just taking a class, dance and teaching dance are a huge aspect of my life

In 5 years, I hope to be...

Performing and teaching dance all over the world. I would like to be in the beginning stages of creating my program that can bring dance training to children in underprivileged communities. I also hope to open an arts based preschool of my own.

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

Dancing and singing. Any way that I can connect kinetic activity to learning is always a fun time for me.
