I was born in Iowa and went to school at Iowa State University. I got my degree in child and family services in 2009. Then I moved to Kansas City and worked with children and families as a teacher and as a social worker for the state of Missouri.
When my husband and I moved to Colorado, I nannied for a couple of years before we started our own family. We have two daughters. I've been staying home with my kids since the end of 2014, but I still have a passion for teaching and want to get back into it.
Elite Early Learning Program is a part-day preschool program for kids age 3-5 — they have to be 3 years old by Aug. 1. It's going to be an individualized curriculum. If some kids need to go at a faster or slower pace, I'll have the flexibility to do that. Class sizes will be small to make sure kids are getting one-on-one interaction and exceling in their learning.
It's out of my house, which is near University and Wildcat Reserve Parkway. I have a daughter with sensory needs, so in the setup there is a lot of equipment for sensory sensation. It will open in August. It will be from 8:45 to 11:45, Monday through Friday, with two-day, three-day, and five-day options.
By the time it opens, I will have completed everything for it to be licensed through the state of Colorado. For more information, visit eliteearlylearningprogram.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Helping kids grow
I really enjoy the challenge of working with kids who are at different levels. When I taught pre-K, I worked with some kids who were reading by the time they went to kindergarten and I had some who were jut learning to write letters.
I think it's really fun to work with small class sizes and bring out kids' individual abilities. I think kids should be able to be challenged. My goal is to make sure nobody is sitting there, waiting around. Everyone will always be moving forward.
My Tupperware cupboard is always organized.
