My Story

I have always been passionate about young children from a young age, in terms of how they grow and how they learn. I genuinely appreciate children’s natural curiosity about the environment they’re in. I have over fifteen years of experience working directly with infants through elementary age in a variety of settings such as summer camps, child care, after school programs, nanny, and therapeutic school. Within the past few years, I have taken an interest in data collection that helps improve program quality and encourages collaboration to strategize techniques to help children with special needs reach their milestones.

My Blue Bird Day

My experience with Blue Bird Day has been a positive one from my initial interview to today, almost four years later. I enjoy working with talented and qualified staff with diverse backgrounds in their expertise.
