I have been an early childhood professional for more than 20 years. Having worked in child care, private, public and charter schools in urban communities, I understand the challenges and joys of working with children from all backgrounds and ethnicities. In my primary roll as a classroom teacher, I have created countless lesson plans, projects, age and developmentally appropriate activities to meet the short and long terms goals and needs of young learners.
My teaching style is fun and highly energetic. I believe that children respond to caring, compassionate adults and because that comes naturally to me, I create a classroom environment which is inviting, warm, welcoming, fun and filled with support for all levels of learning.
