Kids Junction Preschool Teachers’ Bios, Madison
When I started working in Early Childhood in the Late 1970’s there was not much available in the education department. Women were just starting to join the workforce in bigger numbers. Over the years I have taken a multitude of classes and have a Early
Childhood Administrators Credential.
I have been working in Early Childhood since the mid 1980’s and my favorite age group are the three year olds. I also spent 6 years on the mission field. I lived in Australia for a year and was able to travel the world.
I enjoy learning about different cultures. I spend time reading about cultures around the world and watching documentaries. I also enjoy hiking and road trips.
I have completed a certification in Child Development and have taken classes at UW Eau Claire in Social Work. I also have an Associates Degree from MATC.
Over the last 20 years my life has centered around children in a variety of ways. My areas of expertise and experience encompass special education, camp directing, after school program director, recreational coordinator, as well as, dance instruction and volunteering.
I am originally from Mississippi. My family moved to Madison when I was a young child. I enjoy movies, exercising, cooking and playing with my two sons Kane and Kingston.
I graduated from Edgewood College in 2020 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Early Childhood Education.
I have been working with children starting at 13 years old when I started babysitting. Since then I’ve worked in classrooms as a teachers aid, participated in a big buddy program, assistant taught at 2 different daycares, coordinated and early childhood children ministry program, and nannied. I worked at Kids Junction part time towards the end of my college career and really enjoyed it so I’m excited to be back as a full time teacher.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with friends and family, watching movies while eating a good snack, going to a park to hammock and read, play vollyball, and thrift shopping.
I graduated from Neenah High School in 2020 and am currently a student at Edgewood College double majoring in elementary education and Spanish.
I have been working with kids since I was around 12 years old. I have babysat for lots of different families with kids ages infant through 14 and was a Sunday school teacher while I was in high school. I started working at Kids Junction in September of 2021 and mainly work as a float teacher in the 3k and 4k classrooms.
In my free time, I like to spend time outside going for hikes or walks with my dog. I also enjoy going to Badger games and hanging out with my friends and family.
