Meet Lara

My philosophy is child directed, following and encouraging their own interests as they naturally emerge and I like to support families to thrive. I love playing outdoors, reading, cooking/baking, making music, singing, dancing and arts and crafts. As a teacher I love to support learning and development through play and all interactions. I can also help with homework. My background is in transformative and experiential education. I have previously been a lead teacher in a Head Start preschool program and have worked as a teacher and tutor with youth from elementary through high school. I have been caring for infants and children since I was 12 years old including my siblings that are 12 and 14 years younger than I. I am also a birth doula and have worked extensively with postpartum women. I lived with and cared for my niece and nephew for two years when they were babies Read more and toddlers. I currently live with and support a family that has a two year old and eight month old. I am completing a Master's in Educational Leadership August 2019. I AM CURRENTLY AVAILABLE FOR OCCASIONAL AND PART-TIME WORK.
