I am currently working with children ages 2 ½ to 3 ½ years old in the Sequoia Class here at Step by Step. I have been teaching since 2012 with children ages infant through Elementary School.
I have my Site Supervisor permit for teaching and my Early Childhood Education certificate from Lake Tahoe Community College. I will be graduating from LTCC in June of 2021 with my Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education. I am CPR and First Aid certified and I attend various professional development trainings throughout the year every year.
I love spending time with children learning about who they are individually and creating social ways to help them learn and develop. With my age group I focus on helping the children become more independent, expressive, and free to use their imaginations. It makes me feel happy and successful when I see children accomplish certain tasks and become ready for their next stages in life. My favorite things to do with the kids is art, literacy, and spending one on one time with them.
How I Spend My Time
On my free time I love spending time with friends, family, and my dogs. I like going to concerts, I love makeup, music, movies, crafting, organizing, shopping, road trips and camping.
