Why I Work with Children

I think children are full of magic! It is wonderful to be in their presence and experience joy and curiosity with them as well as how to navigate hardships. It’s so fulfilling to see a child light up when they finally get something after struggling and working on an assignment together.

Quick Fact

Loves to read- rotates between fiction and non-fiction every half hour.
