Lead Infant-1 Teacher
It has been a great pleasure working at Storybook Child Care. I have established so many positive relationships with my children and their parents as well as the staff that I work with. I have my Associates Degree in Child Care and Early Education. My degree in education allows me to further the infants learning experiences by coming up with creative techniques to promote their growth.
While in the classroom I enjoy reading to the children, making them laugh and helping them reach their milestones. I also love to get creative when it comes to art projects and sensory play in the classroom.
Outside of the classroom I love to read, listen to music, hang out with my friends and go on adventures. I enjoy going camping with my family in the summer and attend church events in my free time.
