I take great pride in the fact that I have worked with children in a variety of settings from residential treatment facilities, to classrooms, to home visits. I have experience working with children with special needs as well. For the past 6 years I have worked as a parent educator for at risk families with children birth to 3 years old. I love doing crafts with children, playing outside, and reading. I am knowledgeable of age appropriate activities to enhance development. Through my current position I receive CPR and First Aid certification annually. I truly understand how important it is for children to be safe, learn, have fun, and feel genuinely cared for.
