“I knew from a young age I wanted to work with children to help them learn and become the best they could be. I fell in love with Psychology and behavior principles during an intro Psychology course and have not looked back! Teaching children important skills and seeing them put the pieces together is more rewarding than I can describe. I am grateful that I get to call this my job.”
