“To be loved, to be valued, and to be listened to…
to have the space and time to play and explore…
then children will learn!”
Education and Experience in Early Childhood Care and Education
I hold a Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education with a concentration in theatre and a Master of Science in Literacy Education with an ELL endorsement.
I Enjoy Working in Early Childhood Because…
I like to be able to make a difference in the lives of children by providing a safe, nurturing, child-centered, and quality educational environment that fosters a child’s individual success and a love of learning in collaboration with teachers, parents, and the community.
The Importance of Play in the Learning Process
I believe that children and teachers together should be able to explore, question, and discover in a stimulating and nurturing learning environment. Children learn best through active and engaged meaningful play as well as project work and in-depth exploration of a topic directed by the children’s interests, excitement, and curiosity. Through this process, children develop confidence and independence with encouragement from our teachers, their families, and the community around us. I believe in fostering independence, empathy, cooperation, and creativity and encouraging children to build positive relationships with their classmates and teachers.
My Favorite Way to Play as a Child…
When I was a child, I loved imaginative play. Anytime that I could use my creativity, I was happy!
What do I do When I’m not at CSP?
When I am not at CSP, I enjoy spending time with my family; my husband, my two daughters and my dog Daisy. I also do event planning such as weddings, mitzvahs and corporate events.
