3 yrs of experience

While I did complete 2 years in college for early childhood education and development I unfortunately was unable to finish. I have quite a bit of experience working with children ranging back almost 20 years. As well as 2 years experience in the infant room in a Goddard School where I also attained other training through Goddard University. My current availability is rather flexible as well. Just a little more about me personally that I would like to share is that children are my passion. Watching them learn something new and light up from the spark ignited from experiencing and learning new things make even the roughest days worth it all.
