• Emilee – Firefly Teacher

    How long have you been working with children?

     This will be my first time officially working with children, but I raised my brother who is now 9 years old! (So to get technical, you could say that I’ve been working with kids for 9 years).

    The reason you work with children?

    I love getting to see them learn and experience new things, and I love being a part of that.

    What is your strength in the classroom?

    Listening. I feel it’s very important for children to know they’re being listened to and acknowledged. Just because they are smaller or younger does not mean that they don’t deserve our full attention!

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

    My favorite activity to do with children is circle time! I love being able to capture all of their attention just by singing or reading a book. I love it when they are engaged and singing along or reading along with me

    What are your hobbies/interests?

    My biggest hobby is going to the gym, but when I’m not doing that I love hiking, going dancing and hanging out with my family.

    Your favorite color?

    Blue

    Favorite beverage from Starbucks/Tully’s?

    I’m not much of a coffee drinker, but if I had to choose I do like Starbucks Passion Tea Lemonade!
