I have worked with young children most of my adult life, from my own, in ECFE, in church programs and in licensed child care for 18 years. I enjoy teaching, children and adults. I have written one class to express my Reggio Emilia inspired play philosophy, and hope to write more classes. Working with children with special rights is one of the most difficult, but also most satisfying areas of my career. I enjoy working with multi-age and ability groups, as it helps all grow in empathy and understanding for our uniqueness as people.
