Sophia’s Bio

I believe that above anything else, children need to be treated with kindness, respect, and understanding. Since graduating from Sarah Lawrence College in 2008, I have worked with many different children, in both home and school settings, and I have always tried to apply this philosophy consistently. Through my work at a Montessori school the past two years, I have learned to strike the delicate balance between providing a loving and calm presence for children while setting healthy boundaries and being consistent about them. Perhaps most importantly, I have honed the delicate art of patience. 
My instinct for safety is keen, and I am highly intuitive about the needs of children. I have plenty of experience guiding children through the busy streets of the city. My work with both siblings and classmates has given me a lot of experience aiding in conflict resolution—it has taught me to know when to intervene and when to step back and observe. Being “in the moment” with children is one of my favorite things to do, and I enjoy engaging them in various activities including but not limited to cooking projects, art projects, complex imaginative play, having long conversations, singing songs, and joking around. I encourage positive habits and help children explore their creativity through story making, drawing, and anything else they are interested in. I am happy to run around with children and be active, and am equally happy to spend an afternoon lounging together and reading lots of books.
