Meet Marissa

Hi! I am a dedicated and spirited early childhood teacher, nanny, and housekeeper with great creativity and patience. I have 13 years experience working with children across the spectrum, from newborn to school-age. I am passionate about encouraging the whole child through social, emotional, and intellectual development by learning through play. I find working with children to be rewarding and fulfilling. I have learned so much from the many little faces I have met over the years. It is incredible to go along their journey's and see the children learn and grow. I have a broad background working with children who have low to high sensory needs, developmental delays, disabilities, or special needs. I am certified in CPR/First Aid, medical administration, and numerous seminars for continuing education. I am skilled in creating lesson plans/ schedules, time management, and maintaining households. I have worked in classrooms with between 4 to 20 Read more kids, as well as in the home with twins, triplets, or more than one child. Please don't hesitate to contact me, I look forward to hearing from you!
