I have my associate Early childhood credential through American Montessori Society and have taught Montessori for three years. I enjoy seeing the children’s eyes light up to their learning experiences.
I am currently in college for early learning and have wanted to be a teacher for a very long time. In my spare time I like to hike. I am excited to be a part of ACJS.
have been working with children for the past 3 years and really enjoy it. I have two kids of my own. This is a very important time in a child’s life and am so happy to be a part of it.
I graduated from Kent Meridian High School and attended Bellevue College. I enjoy playing basketball and snuggling my son in my spare time. I look forward to working with your family.
