Elba’s Bio

I am affectionate, easy-going and love to incorporate the outdoors into all that I do. I exercise regularly and enjoy jogging and swimming as well.  I am hispanic (family is from Puerto Rico) and I speak fluent Spanish. I enjoy teaching young children the language and watch their expressions change as they begin to understand what is being said to them in this new way of speaking! The younger they are when taught a new language, the easier they pick it up!

I have 15 years experience caring for children with special needs, tube feeding, premies and twins. I gained a whole new appreciation for the ease at which we all can do even the simplest things in life such as walk and talk!

Throughout my experiences, I have learned that no two children are alike, and you have to be prepared to learn from THEM, what teaching style works best sometimes.  What is "typical" for one child, may certainly not be for another. Taking care of  a variety of children and watching them grow and mature, all with different personalities, likes/dislikes, varied needs... has made it easier for me to work with people of all ages. I take great pleasure in providing much-needed services to families and to be involved in helping to shape their children's experiences as I provide care, while having my experiences and views molded by them in return!
I let the parent guide me in their preferred child-rearing styles.
