Having over 10 years of formal childcare experience, and an additional five as a sitter or Nanny in private homes, my ultimate goal is to provide a safe and nurturing environment to all children in my care. I have a Bachelors in Elementary education and in Developmental Psychology. I am a former Car Seat Safety Passenger Technician and CPR/first Aid certified as well. I can read/write/speak basic Spanish. My desire for a quality education is often expressed through a very creative and highly stimulating learning environment. I believe every child deserves a personalized approach to learning, no matter how difficult the task appears to be, and strive to attain such success. Having the ability to provide a young life with the safety and security to grow and learn has always been my greatest joy in life! I love and care for each child as if they were my own, showing Read more the same care and concern their own parents do. I feel that children are a true blessing, and I adore the sound of a child's laugh, the smile and sense of pride that they get when they discover something new, and the endless love and curiosity that they have! Now having my own child, this has solidified my love for children and passion for teaching and caring for them exponentially! I am currently working in a kindergarten through second grade Special Education classroom and have re-solidified my love for helping each child learn the way THEY need to, even if it is not "typical". I enjoy the challenge of finding new ways to help young ones grow and learn and share in the excitement as the progress.
