” I think it is important for caregivers and teachers to be kind and compassionate with infants and young children as they learn to make sense of the world. Creating a trusting bond is at the core of early childhood education.”  -Miss Gabrielle

I love being a teacher because I love watching children progress throughout the year and seeing their little light bulbs go off. They bring so much happiness and education into my life. I find myself learning so much from them. I want the children to know they can come to me for anything and I am willing to always participate in an activity. The best part of teaching is watching their communicative, social and cognitive skills develop. They make life better.

I began working at TLC in 2018 after earning my Associate’s Degree in Early Childhood Education in 2018. I have experience working with children of all ages. I formally taught gymnastics for five years and worked as a lead toddler teacher in a preschool. I feel that children deserve the chance to be educated properly while being cared for and shown compassion by their educators. It’s important to be patient, kind, and accepting of the children when educating them as well as meeting their individual needs. Each child should be given a time to shine and show off their accomplishments as well as strengths, it’s important to build a child’s self-esteem and confidence. I also believe that communication between parents and teachers is a key part in a child’s development, and I value the relationships that are built in doing so.
