I am really involved in my church, they do nursey and occasional childcare. My mother also was a teacher, now we babysit children from around our area. In high school I took Early Childhood Ed. This is a class where we learned about caring for children and much more. I learned many techniques when disciplining children.This class was more hands on,we had children from the area come to our preschool to learn.It was real and raw learning experience. We learned how to be the teacher more than anything. We made lesson plans and made changes to the classroom. Made decorations,interactive games, and much more. It was a great experience. I get my love for children from my mother. She has always loved children, even before she had her own. Thank you

I have raised a son and daughter that are college educated and have successful careers. My B.A. degree is in Elem. Education. I’m certified in VA to teach Pre-K - 6th. Before college I kept very busy “baby sitting” older children when their parents were out of town. I’ve always interacted with children through books, drama, music, outdoor activities, field trips and homework.
