I have enjoyed working with children for the past 15 years.  I started my career by volunteering at my church child care program every week.  I then started babysitting and became a private nanny in the summer months.  Knowing that child care and preschool is what I wanted to focus on, I became an assistant teacher at a licensed day care while attending college.  After graduating with an Early Childhood Education Degree, I was offered a lead teacher position in a GSRP Early Childhood Program.

I truly love and feel blessed by being a part of each child”s learning experience.  There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a student grasp a concept that had caused them to struggle.  We each have different learning sets, and I enjoy a challenge of finding ways to make learning fun for each student.

I graduated Cum Laude, with an Associate’s Degree in Early Childhood Education.   I was on the Presidents Honor List and awarded the Certificate of Academic Achievement.  I was also invited for membership in Phi Theta Kappa Chapter.

I love spending time with friends and family, as well as with my two dogs Spencer and Shorty.  I enjoy many hobbies, and love relaxing with a cup of coffee while reading a good book.  I also volunteer at my church and help with the Awana and Upwords Basketball programs.
