Fun facts about me:

I am married and have two teen boys. I love gardening, playing board games, watching soccer games (Man United Fan) and spending time with family and friends.

Why did you decide to work with preschoolers at the Children's Center?

I believe in whole child and play-based curriculum where children learn through play. Children’s Center philosophy has matched my criteria and that’s why I decided to join the team. Teaching young children is my passion. What I love most about teaching young children is their curiosity, eagerness to learn new things, and unconditional love. Such joy to teach and learn from these little scientists!!!

From your perspective, what makes the Children's Center so special?

On my first day at the Children’s Center, I felt there was a very caring, friendly, and supportive staff as well as parents.
