My greatest experience and joy is raising my own 2 children who are living successful, independent, happy and healthy lives: a 19 year old girl who is a Senior in College and a 23 year old son working as an Audio/Visual Engineer. While raising my children I also became interested in (and good at) working with children. I became the Manager for the Kids Club, which provided daycare for the members of our fitness gym. There I supervised the afety and activity of up to 10 children at a time. From there, I took some early childhood education credits and became a preschool teacher working with children 2-5. My work included imaginative play, yoga, music instruction, in a fun, safe environment. At the same time I volunteered with an agency working with infants in toddlers in foster care. In my synagogue I became the Family Programming Chair and ended up Read more opening a weekend school where I developed the curriculum, hired the teachers, and worked with the children directly, ages 2-16.
