Teacher Spotlight: Hannah Testas

Everything we do at Day Early Learning is aimed at nurturing each child’s social, emotional and educational needs. Our ultimate goal is not only to prepare your child for kindergarten, but also to inspire a lifelong learning journey. Well-educated and trained teachers ensure that your child will be in the best hands possible.

Lilly Family Center.

What age group do you teach?
I am in a preschool classroom.

How long have you worked at Day Early Learning?
I have been at Day Early Learning for a little over one year.

I used to volunteer as a teacher for the elementary group at church when I was young, and I knew at just 18 years old that teaching was the work I wanted to do.

How do you like to spend your free time?
I enjoy reading out on my balcony with my dog.

What is/was your favorite children’s book?
My favorite has always been Spunky’s First Christmas by Janette Oke.

What was the last moment that caused you to stop and remember why you love teaching and working with children?
There was a child who I was helping as they were learning to talk, and all my work felt most worthwhile the moment they finally said my name for the first time.

What is your favorite thing about working at Day Early Learning?
My coworkers make everything better. It’s been really nice being able to learn and grow with them, and over a short time we’ve become like family.
