Giving young children a good foundation and start in life is my passion. The teachers knowledge and skills have a direct effect on the success of the children in my care. When working with adults in the early childhood field I am blessed to be able to share my knowledge and experiences with young children. It is so gratifying to see a student develop self-esteem and self confidence and the feeling that they can do more than they think. One of my favorite sayings is: My teacher thought I could do it so I did. This is important for adult students as well as young children.
