My Story

Working with children is something that I fell in love with unexpectedly. After nearly finishing my Bachelors degree program to teach middle school and high school English, I took time off from my studies and worked as a toddler teacher at an early childhood center for three and a half years. During my time as a teacher, I noticed possible signs of speech delay and autism in some students but was not trained or qualified enough to make such a diagnosis. Whenever children in my classroom were diagnosed with Autism or learning disabilities, therapists that were contracted outside of the center would come in and help said children and I was always curious about the methods that these therapists were using to help the children in my classroom. Often as a teacher who has ten toddlers in my care, I felt as though I was not doing enough to help children who were not reaching developmental milestones as quickly as other children their age. Because of this, I began looking into developmental therapy so that I could be of service to children in need.

My Blue Bird Day

I will be joining Blue Bird Day as a Therapeutic Assistant.

My Blue Bird Day Goals

  1. I would like to go back to school to study Child Development in hopes of becoming a Developmental Therapist or a Child Development Specialist working in a hospital or school setting.
