My passion is working with young children to spark their interest and curiosity to learn and to increase their self-esteem. Everyone is special in their own way. I love to see them expand their horizons. They can accomplish anything they set their minds to! They just have to keep trying and work hard at it. They can do it!
I am a mother of three older children. I am also a wife, sister and twin. My twin sister and I are the oldest of six. We grew up in Massachusetts. I have an Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education along with a Child Development Associates Credential (CDA) from The Council for Early Childhood Professional Recognition. I receive training in infant/toddler CPR and first aid.
I am a member of the National Association for Family Child Care (NAFCC) and the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). I am an active member with the Greater Norwalk Family Child Care Association and the All Our Kin network in the Norwalk/Stamford area.
Every year I seek out additional training to enhance my knowledge of working with young children.
Some of my special interest outside of the school include spending time with my family hiking some of the high peaks in the Adirondacks, kayaking, white water rafting, zip lining, four wheeling (quading) and other outdoor adventures.
