What was the last moment that caused you to stop and remember why you love teaching and working with children?
Just recently, I had a parent come up to me and tell me that their daughter was pretending to be me over the weekend and started reading the books like I do in class. It made me stop and remember that my students are always watching me and looking up to me.
What is your favorite thing about working at Day Early Learning?
The team I work with at Park 100, we are a family here and the environment we have created is my favorite thing we are supportive of each other and we motivate one another and I couldn’t ask for a better team!
