I hold all the certifications required for the state of Massachusetts and the federal level for a senior teacher and administrator in the field of early childhood education from 0 to 6 years of age. In my work, I advocate Reggio Emilia's philosophy that a child is an able individual who needs to be given a field and an opportunity for expression.
