I’ve I am certified in Early Childhood as well as Elementary Education in Pennsylvania. I'm also certified as a Reading Specialist in New York and I am working towards my Pennsylvania certification. I have my Bachelors of Arts in Elementary Education (Pre-K to 6th grade) and my Masters of Science in Teaching as a Reading Specialist (Birth through 6th grade). I learned a great deal about how language and literacy skills develop from birth to adulthood, which is something I love to teach others and foster in children. I've worked in a variety of early childhood care settings such as private homes, day cares, summer programs, and after-school programs. I’ve tutored privately as well as at tutoring centers. I was a teacher at the Head Start Pre-K program for five years teaching 3 to 5-year-olds. I taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders in an elementary school. I’ve also taught infants and toddlers in a day care, and helped care for two girls since they were born who are now 4 and 6-years-old. I have worked as a nanny in private homes with infants, toddlers, and children with special needs (autism). I volunteered for about 3 years at a nursing home on my college campus, visiting with and singing to Alzheimer’s patients.
