What is your educational background?
I graduated from Cuyahoga Community College with an Associates of Applied Science Degree in Early Childhood Education. I continued my studies at Cleveland State University where I graduated with a Bachelors of Science Degree in Early Childhood Education.
What is your favorite thing about what you do?
I enjoy getting lots of hugs, daily interaction with the children, meeting parents and developing meaningful, respectful relationships with children, parents and in the community. Also, I work with team members who are committed to providing the children with daily lessons that help them to gain knowledge and understanding, and knowing they are teaching lifelong skills.
What inspires you to do your job?
Knowing the services and opportunities we provide to children and their families help those families to be successful, independent and self-sufficient in life.
What’s one thing you want potential parents to know about your site?
Green Road ELC is welcoming, inviting, and we have highly-qualified staff with degrees and certificates in Early Childhood Education. We provide the children with an educational foundation for learning and preparation for kindergarten while providing parents with opportunities and resources to continue helping the children develop school readiness skills at home.
