I have been around children since I was a small child. My mother held a home daycare center in her home and I loved to be her little helper. When I was 10, I began babysitting for the neighbor and watched her young infant son. I have been babysitting ever since. When I turned 18 I was hired into a Child Development Center, and worked as the infant and toddler teacher. I also spent some time in the preschool and school aged classrooms through out the six years that I worked at the center. As there was a change in owners I followed my director to her new center, to continue to work with her. I have been here for the past two years, working as the lead toddler teacher. I have always loved to be around children and watch the amazement in their faces as they grow and develop and learn new things. Children have always been my passion and I couldn't see myself doing anything else. :)
