I’ve been working with children since I was 16. One thing I’ve always known about myself is I was destined to help people out whether that be adults or children. After being in the medical field for some time I leaned more towards helping children. 
While working in pediatrics, I noticed that a lot of children lack the basics of education from not knowing their name to not even knowing their age. After a couple years of being in medicine I decided to become a cook at COE. At first it was a different experience but the more I engaged with the children the more I became vested in the education of a child. Soon after I became the infant room teacher and that’s where I fell in love with being an educator. To watch them grow and learn what’s being taught in class was nothing less than amazing. 


One thing I will always stand firm on is advocating for young children especially in the educational world.
