Hello, my family and I moved from Illinois to Texas! I’m a lifelong learner who has worked with children 0-16 and families for the last 10 years. I firmly believe all children are a beautiful gift from God as Psalm 127:3 says. I adopted the philosophy of Jean Piaget, Lev Vygotsky, and Erik Erikson that was passed down from my ECE mentor. I believe no child should ever be left behind, I believe that children construct knowledge through healthy relationships and positive interactions in their environment and this happens in various stages. However, a child may stay in a stage as long as it takes to master that skill. I began my career in ECE directly after High School. I have worn multiple hats in the ECE Field from volunteering, T.A, teacher, youth mentor, nutrition specialist, parent policy committee chairperson, and assistant director/director. I received Early Childhood Education trainings/certifications from ILGatewaysToOppotunities program.
