I enjoy the strong rapport with individual children and the many teachable moments that occur that occur in the home environment. My academic background in child development allows me to support a growing child's safe exploration of the world while building a strong foundation for ongoing learning and literacy. Although my baccalaureate degree from UC Davis is in Classical Languages, I also hold an AA in Social Science with a focus in Early Childhood Education and a graduate-level CLAD teaching credential. My goal is to create a safe, warm and reflective environment which fosters autonomy and is based upon mutual respect (the R.I.E. philosophy). I enjoy facilitating development via child-centered, process-oriented activities and one-on-one interaction. I strive to nurture the whole child, including physical, intellectual and psychosocial aspects.
