Seeing the children grow each day is why I chose early education! The excitement that they show when they have mastered a skill or have a game that they want you to play with them, is what makes each day so fun. When I am not working with children, I enjoy dancing and reading and attending sporting events, especially the New York Yankees.
Education: CDA in Preschool Education
Certifications: First Aid & CPR
My passion for childcare started at the age of 12 when I began babysitting. Building those strong, trusting connections with the families and children, helping children to identify their emotions and building self confidence are some of the things that make this career path so rewarding. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, going on nature walks and to the beach, as well as hosting cookouts and events.
