Hourly rate22.85 / hour
Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

I am 42 years old and I have 3 teenage boys, all of which have varying degrees of Autistic Spectrum Disorders and learning disabilities. While my boys were my first valuable experience in early childhood education, I went on to get credentialed in early childhood education and taught well over 30,000 children in my 17 year career as an early childhood educator. I have 10+ years experience as a curriculum development specialist, center director, and national conference presenter and trainer. Additionally, in 2002, I founded a learning enrichment company (Fun-Etics, Inc./ www.ActiveLiteracy.com). The foundational curriculum for Fun-Etics, Inc. is a proven multi-sensory, multi-disciplinary curriculum that I personally developed based on the latest research in the field. My learning enrichment company has now served well over 50,000 children to date, and continues to reach over 300 children every 4 weeks! I am now primarily hands-off with that venture, and I am currently serving as the director of a multi-million dollar national child development center. I also have extensive experience in upper level management of early learning centers ensuring compliance with all state and federal regulating agencies (DCFS licensing, the Illinois health department, and the state and federal fire marshall). I am also CPR & First Aid certified, and I have my Illinois Food Sanitation certificate, valid through 2015.
