Teacher Spotlight: Rachel Bova

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.

Here is your chance to get to know some of our Day Early Learning teachers. This week, we highlight Rachel Bova.

IU Health.

What age group do you teach?
I am in a Preschool (3-4) classroom.

How long have you worked at Day Early Learning?
I have been at Day Early Learning for nine months.

How do you like to spend your free time?
I like spending time outdoors – Hiking, biking, rock climbing, kayaking, etc.

What is/was your favorite children’s book?
“The Giving Tree” by Shel Silverstein.

What was the last moment that caused you to stop and remember why you love teaching and working with children?
I am reminded daily why I love working with children. I do, however, have a special love for those moments when I am not feeling my full self in the classroom and, without discussing, my friends can sense this and offer me a hug. The purity and developing empathy of a preschooler is inspiring.

What is your favorite thing about working at Day Early Learning?
Other than the kids, I thoroughly enjoy working for a company that is so inclusive and genuine. Specifically, I am so happy to be in a center full of amazing women who treat each other as family, rather than just coworkers.

I love cats! (:
