Reliable, dedication and experienced in the EEC (preschool) field. Working with children from the poorest backgrounds, foster care children, abused children (mentally/sexually), developmentally delayed children, medically fragile children, and a plethora of other children. The children's safety is always priority number one followed by education. I provided clear guidelines for teaching staff and monitor to ensure all goals are met and if needed provide guidance, counseling, training, education and in some cases termination as not everyone is cut out for preschool teaching. I hate to fail even though I have from time to time but if we learn from it, did we really fail?
