I have been passionate about children since I was a child myself. Growing up an only child in a very small family with no aunts or uncles (and therefore no nieces or nephews!), I have always wanted the biggest family the universe could create for me. My childhood extra-curricular activity was theater, and by the age of 13, I turned that "activity" into a teaching career for myself. I loved inspiring other children to grow their own talents, being their number one supporter, and letting them know that they were never alone. This passion has grown exponentially in the last decade.
If I could describe myself in 3 words, they would be persistent, intuitive, and gracious. I love turning every-day situations into life lessons, as I truly believe everything has a learning component. Having cared for infants, young children, and middle-schoolers, I feel that I have a good handle on the developmental process and the kind of care thats needed for each age group.
When I am with a child, I give them my undivided attention. I find that nothing is more important than nurture, and I can't help but root for all of the children that I work with. Children are a blank slate, and everything that happens in their early development is of the utmost importance. I take my role as an educator and caregiver very seriously, while of course, respecting all parental wishes.
