Q: What motivates you as a teacher? 

Working with young children is always an adventure! They teach me to be flexible in my thinking, quick on my feet, and reflective throughout each moment of the day. Every year I feel I’ve gained a new perspective on how to advocate, support, and scaffold children and their inquiries about the world.

I started volunteering at WNNS 2017

Q: What was your favorite book when you were a child?

Aesops fables... loved getting lost reading about Griffins :)

Q: What is your favorite children's book now?

My faves seem to be whatever my 9 year old is into so right now it’s Totoro the Novel (novel piece being very important ) but if I had my own choice it would still be Gruffalo!

Q: What motivates you as a teacher? 

WNNS was such an amazing place for my daughter for the time she was here, the smiles on the kids faces was something I wanted to be a part of. After volunteering for a while it was obvious to me that the work these early education teachers do was not only massively important but equally rewarding. The idea that I can be a part of a happy, safe, educational and fun day in these kids lives, is motivation enough for me!

Q: What motivates you as a teacher? 

I love being around 2-year-olds as they begin to find the words to express themselves, and seeing the joy that comes with being able to communicate in a new way.  I love what the newfound sense of language does for their imaginations and and how it informs the way they play with one another. It's so rewarding to witness big discoveries like these, and I think that is what motivates me the most.
