    Assistant Director - Curriculum Focus
    I love to participate and witness that moment of excitement in each child as they learn new things. They really enjoy those little moments in life and that is something that most adults forget to do. I’ve worked in childcare since 2012 as a preschool, school-age, infant, and toddler teacher, as well as a manager at a center.

    I have found that children will surprise you by sharing their love and joy with you in surprising ways every day. They can make me smile without even trying. I have worked with children since the age of 17. I attended California State University, San Bernardino in pursuit of my BA in Liberal arts and have been a tutor, a student mentor, and a Teacher’s Assistant for children of various ages and abilities including English as a second language as well as Special Education.

I’ve been working with children ever since my first babysitting job as a teenager. While I hold a degree in English Philology, I’ve worked as an Au Pair and a Tutor for many children, I’ve also helped coordinate and translate for others hopeful to become Au Pairs.

    I've been a nanny and in childcare since 2003. My favorite children's book is, "Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See?" because children love to sing along with it. Working with children is very rewarding for me. I like to watch their faces light up when they greet me in the morning.

    I’ve been working with children since 2015. I started as a volunteer at a preschool and found my passion as a teacher for young children. I developed into a Lead Teacher and have experience in both Montessori and Play-Based teaching philosophies. I really enjoy the unique sense of pride that a child displays after learning something meaningful as the direct result of an activity that I have planned for them.
