I am a mother of three adult sons and a grandmother of three girls. Over the course of thirty-eight years, I have attended to my own children and that of my neighbors and family members. Living on an estate, I had the pleasure of exposing the children to various activities including swimming, farming, and exploring nature. All of these activities were supported with educational tools at our disposal. They included reading, trips to museums, and hands on experiences. The children were exposed to other cultures through music, dining, and travel. I have lived in Europe and enjoyed sharing my personal experiences with the children through drama and art. I have worked in Special Education as a certified para-professional assisting students in all aspects of learning. I have experience with the Wilson Reading Program, "floor time" with Ruby Zalazar which is a program for special needs students, and am certified in CPR.Good humor and patience are the qualities that I most often employ interacting with all people.
