I am a certified teacher from Connecticut. I recently graduated from Eastern Connecticut State University with my degree in Early Childhood Education and Psychology. My degree also certifies me as a special education teacher for pre-k and kindergarten students. Through my education, I have participated in many education classes, as well as clinical and student teaching experiences, which were supervised by a teacher and an university supervisor. My educational experience consists of working with children in preschool to third grade and children with varying special needs. While I was going to school, I also worked at a daycare for three and a half years. I was quickly promoted at the daycare from a starting staff, to a program group leader, and then to a preschool assistant teacher. At the daycare, I planned lessons, conducted lessons, supervised other staff and created a safe and nurturing environment for children in preschool, 1st grade, 3rd grade and 4th grade. Currently, I am teaching summer school in an ABA (applied behavior analysis) classroom, which ends in early August. I also have much experience babysitting children of all ages; from newborn to 13 years old.
