Welcome and thank you for taking the time to get to know us. I joined the Kiddie Academy team at our Whitestone location in September of 2011. As I went from teaching preschool to teaching pre-kindergarten, it became evident that the Kiddie Academy philosophy in early childhood education matched my own. That is when I decided to pursue the adventure of becoming the director of our Flushing location when it opened its doors in October of 2013. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary and Early Childhood Education, as well as in Sociology from Queens College in Flushing, New York. My Master of Science degree is in Childhood Education, specializing in Children's Literature. By applying my 19 years of experience in the field, my goal is to create an environment where our students feel safe, nurtured, and free to explore. It is in these early years that we must lay the foundation for a successful future through a lifelong love of learning. With my guidance and support, our teachers will accomplish this by providing an atmosphere that incorporates a variety of manipulatives and cooperative learning materials to actively engage students’ minds. We strive to motivate and inspire the children placed in our care.
