About the lesson
I have a master's degree in education, have taught at the college level and have years of experience in adult education. I am a WA State MERIT approved trainer. I can plan and design any type of training that meets the needs and interests of anyone interested in working within the field of early childhood education as well as providing support to those currently working as in-home family child care providers, classroom teachers or after-school instructors. This includes ensuring that all training meets WA State requirements for those working in licensed childcare.
I believe students must be actively involved and engaged in their own learning. I tailor my instruction to meet the learning styles of adult learners. I believe in providing students with the opportunity to apply lessons learned within real-life situations.

It has been my privilege to work in the field of early childhood education for my entire career, as a classroom teacher, program administrator, coach, mentor, consultant and college instructor. I have planned, presented and facilitated hundreds of hours of workshops for licensed childcare providers and have presented workshops at professional conferences at the local, state and national level. Staff who have worked under my leadership have gone on to pursue graduate degrees and have been promoted into positions of management where they are supervising/mentoring others. College students have graduated ready and prepared to enter/re-enter the workforce. Childcare providers/teachers have reported "this is the best workshop I have ever attended- thank you so much!"
