I have been inspired to be a teacher ever since I was a young child and helped my mother with our in-home daycare. Throughout highschool years I signed up for multiple child development classes and got a part time job at a local daycare. When I graduated high school I began working forty hours per week as an assistant toddler and preschool teacher. I then began taking classes online to gain my teaching certification through the EEC. I have worked with children for over ten years and have experience in a large group daycare setting for four years. I am currently the lead toddler teacher and am still going to school and will be recieving my director 2 certification this coming fall. Other than childcare my passion is graphic design so I believe this website will be a great creative outlet for myself and I hope that other's can benefit from my resources :)
I have strong beliefs in the reggio emilila teaching philosphy. I believe that children learn best through play and that teachers should take the time to get to know their classrooms interest and then help them gain knowledge on their interests.! I believe that it is of great importance to get to know each child individually.
I got accepted into an "Emerging Leaders Program" run by the department of Early Childhood Education where only 30 applicants in the state were chosen. It has given me the opprotunity to take a fast paced course entirely online and gaining me my directors 2 certification completely for free. Because this program is entirely online I am still able to multi task and work my job as a toddler teacher, full time, forty hours per week!
I have took early childhood education and administration related college courses at fisher college, northshore community college, middlesex community college, and northernessex community college.
