I’m a fully certified Early Childhood Educator and a mom of two gorgeous girls and a stepmom of two handsome boys. I love my job and each and every child within our program. Although I know I’m not their mother - my role is just as strong. I nurture them and keep them safe, though maybe not for long. There will be a day that we will have to part but know each child I’ve cared for holds a big piece of my heart. ❥
