I am a 34-year-old married mother of three children, ages 13, 11, and 6, all boys. My youngest is a special needs child whom my husband and I adopted. Since adopting him I have gained experience caring for children affected by cerebral palsy, respiratory difficulties, autism, developmental disabilities, behavior and mood disorders, ADHD, and feeding tubes. My two older children I home-schooled from kindergarten through 5th and 6th grades. They began attending public school beginning in 2014.
Before having children of my own, I was employed at a local child care center where I was responsible for assisting a lead teacher with caring for, teaching, and planning activities for 3-5-year-olds. I received my training for this at Cape May County Technical School where I studied and earned a CDA in Child Care Occupations. I decided that was the field I'd like to study after much experience babysitting for friends and family between the ages of 11 and 19.
I love children and the joy that they bring. They offer a refreshing perspective on the world around us and it is my goal to foster those qualities and provide a high standard of care when an alternate provider is needed.
