I hold an Associate of Arts degree, an Associate’s of Applied Science degree in Early Childhood Education, a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education, a Pre-Kindergarten Associate License and a Master’s degree in Educational Leadership.
What is your favorite thing about what you do?
As a Site Administrator, I have a vision of academic success for all children. Therefore, working with families as partners in education to ensure that their child has the best possible experience and optimal success, makes that vision attainable. Additionally, every educator plays a role in leading tomorrow’s future. As a Site Administrator, it is my role to ensure that teachers are in a supportive, flourishing, school environment.
What inspires you to do your job?
“Education,” as Nelson Mandela said, “is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”
“Teachable Moments“ – From the perspective of education theorist, Havighurst explained, “A developmental task is a task which is learned at a specific point and which makes the achievement of succeeding tasks possible. When the timing is right, the ability to learn a particular task will be possible. This is referred to as a “teachable moment.”
What’s one thing you want potential parents to know about your site?
As your Site Administrator, it is important to me that everyone who steps through our doors is excited to be here! This attitude enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in a positive, fun, and nurturing environment. Here at Green Road Early Learning Center, we provide consistent implementation of the curriculum and academic experiences for your children that are relevant; and will help them build relationships while making real-world connections from their experiences.
