After receiving my AA in Teacher Education from Frederick Community College, and my BS in Elementary Education from Salisbury (State) University I began what will be in January my 30 year career to date in Early Childhood Education.
I began my career working in three different privately owned child care centers in both Frederick and Montgomery Counties. After 11 years of the private sector of child care I made the change to corporate child care working for the next 15 years for KinderCare Learning Centers in Frederick. Over the course of those 26 years I worked as a Teacher, Assistant Director, Director, Tutorial Specialist, Health and Safety Coordinator, Bus Driver, Program Specialist, etc. Pretty much any and everything that needs to be done in a child care center I have done!
For the last 3 years I have been employed by Child Care Choices, an agency of The Mental Health Association of Frederick County, as an Early Childhood Specialist. I have provided behavioral support for both licensed center and family child care facilities in Frederick and Carroll Counties. I have worked with Maryland Credential, EXCELS and Accreditation initiatives as well.
I am very excited to begin my new position here at Creative Children’s Center on Monday August 5th as the Co-Director/Behavioral Specialist. I will be working very closely with Mr. Brett and Mrs. Jackie on maintaining the high level of quality child care you receive and have come to expect from Creative Children’s Center. As a center we will be going through the Maryland Accreditation Process, which is an accreditation awarded to centers going over and above the state licensing requirements, and providing the highest level of care possible to children and families. I am looking forward to a long and rewarding career here at Creative Children’s Center helping to drive the company forward and investing in our youngest most vulnerable members of society
