My first experience working with young children started as a live-in nanny. I cared for 4 children ages infant-5 years of age. I loved it so much that I received my undergraduate degree in Early Childhood in 2002. I worked at a few different preschools in my area and gained experience as a classroom teacher. I am currently employed as an after school teacher at an independent school and have been a teacher there for over a decade. I really enjoy watching children grow and mature both intellectually and socially. I believe learning never ends and I am therefore committed to professional development opportunities to stay current in my field. My own son is now a high school student which gives me time to help families with their childcare needs. I am very active, love the outdoors, books, cooking and crafts!
