On working at the Center

“The best part of my job are the children. Where else could you go and have someone say they love you every day?”

Teaching Philosophy

“You must have firm desire to work with children and a kind and patient spirit. When working with children with difficulties, ‘it is the care not the cure.’ We at the center care a lot about ‘our’ children. We want them to succeed, to bloom.”


“I have two girls who make me the best person I can be, as well as strong family ties.”
