Favorite Crayola color:  Turquoise Blue

Background: I am currently working as a teacher at a local preschool with 3 year olds. I have been in a formal childcare setting since August 2016. I have 40 hours of DCF training and am staff credentialed. I have been babysitting since I was 12 years old. In the past I have mentored middle school students as well as cared for groups of young children in a church setting. I have worked with kids from birth to age 12. I love when I have the opportunity to grow with families and be able to see their children develop. I am currently finishing up my Bachelor's in Family and Child Sciences- I graduate in December 2017! 

Future plans: I plan on continuing to teach full-time as a preschool teacher and I want to teach English abroad in China! I also want to go back to school and get my Master's degree in Counseling and I hope to move to the Tampa/St. Pete area with my husband. 

When I'm not babysitting: I like to read, spend time with friends, make art with crafts and paint, and hammock! 

Defining quotation: "A warrior feeds her body well. She trains it, works on it. Where she lacks knowledge, she studies. But above all, she must believe in her strength of will and purpose and heart and soul." -David Gemmel
