My Story

I began working with young children when I was just beginning High School. I started tutoring children from 1st grade through middle school as my first job working with children that were in need of some extra supports with their school work. Throughout high school, I continued to tutor children, and began to see children slipping through the cracks as I did not have the proper supports for them. I decided I wanted to be on a team that was able to provide those children with the supports they needed in order to reach their maximum potential. As I got older, I began working at various pre-schools, and found myself in the same position where I was lacking supports. I finally decided that I wanted to provide those supports myself, I just did not quite know how. Through my experience and education, I have learned on my own how to provide extra supports to these children. However, I would like to fully immerse myself in a field where I am able to learn and grow in order to provide the correct and proper supports for each individual child. My heart is full when I am able to see children succeeding, thriving, and growing!

My Blue Bird Day Goals

  1. I would like to pursue developmental therapy as a career goal. I find myself much too often wishing that I had the right steppingstones to get there. I am hoping as a TA, I can learn how to best provide for children and gain experience working directly with the children and other professionals.
