Dear Parents/Caregivers,

Welcome to the Otter’s classroom! I am delighted to be the Otter’s Lead Teacher this year!  Toddlerhood is such a fun time for learning, growing, and gaining independence!

I have been working with toddlers for about 17 years, and I have been with Child’s Day for 12 years.  I earned my first degree in another field and my second degree in Early Childhood.  This field of study has allowed me to focus on the early years of our lives which are such a critical time for physical, mental, and social/emotional development, and I am passionate about challenging, encouraging, and loving your children through this time of their lives. I am so excited to begin the year with each child and family.

I am the oldest of 8 siblings and I have four children of my own ranging from 32 years old to 18.  I have three grandsons, the oldest is 12 and the youngest is 3 years old. Our family is expecting another precious joy in January 2019 hope this grandchild is a girl. I enjoy spending my free time with my children and with congregation activities.  My goal in life is to become a missionary. I thoroughly enjoy coming to work every day and being a toddler teacher.

Our goal is to foster a classroom community of trust, growth, and love among the Otter families, and we hope you take advantage of the supportive community at Child’s Day.  Furthermore, parent/teacher partnerships are vital to the success of an early childhood classroom, so please contact any of us with any questions or comments you may have.
