• Brenda – Caterpillar Teacher

    How long have you been working with children?

    I have been working with children for over twelve years!

    Why do you work with children?

    I love their enthusiasm, their eagerness to learn new things, how proud they get when they succeed at something new.

    What is your strength in the classroom?

    I enjoy making lesson plans with the children’s unique interests and abilities in mind. Being in the toddler classroom requires the ability to multi-task, with potty training, encouraging verbal language skills, performing engaging circle times, and all the other activities during the day, there are so may things to do and usually at the same time.

    What is your favorite activity/topic to share with children?

    I love doing art with the children, finding new and creative ways of making art projects. I also really enjoy circle times, especially when the children are singing along and are wanting to help out with the flannel board stories.

    What are your hobbies/interests?

    I enjoy walking, hiking, camping and, of course, spending time with my son.

    What is your favorite color?

    Blue!

    What is your favorite beverage from Starbucks/Tully’s?

    At Starbucks, I like the iced nonfat vanilla latte and the iced caramel white chocolate mocha. At Tully’s, I love their smoothies!
