Meet Miss Michelle
Hello! My name is Miss Michelle and I am so excited to join the Children Central family as a Preschool Teacher, as of April 2022! I have been teaching for over ten years in classrooms ranging in age from Infants to Toddlers and Preschool, with the majority of experience in Preschool.
After many years in the corporate world, I decided my true passion was in Early Childhood Education. I volunteered for many of my daughter’s activities which included becoming a Girl Scout Leader/Treasurer, collaborating in the reading program in both first and second grades, being a committee member on Understanding our Differences, assisting in the development of fine motor skills in kindergarten, and coordinating relationships between classroom teachers and parents. After enjoying all of these roles related to education, I then returned to school and earned an Associates’ degree in Early Childhood Education!
When not in the classroom, my second love is ‘re-exploring’ the city of Philadelphia, since moving back from Boston, Massachusetts recently. I love to wander around my new neighborhood with my rescue dog Charley Brown. I am also enjoying being close to my daughter who is attending Drexel University.
I cannot wait to spend the day in our Preschool classroom with your child, as we play and learn with creativity, autonomy and self-confidence!
Meet Miss Carissa!
Hi! My name is Miss Carissa. I joined Children Central in January 2022 as a teacher in the Twaddlers classroom. I feel as if I have graduated to the Preschool class together with many of the children! The wonderful part is that I already know many of the children and families having previously been their teacher.
I am attending Bucks County Community College and will soon complete my Associate’s degree in Pre-K to fourth grade. I have experience with age groups ranging from the Infant Room through Preschool. I previously taught for approximately two years at a local child care center. It brings me so much joy to instruct students and implement the curriculum and weekly lesson plans daily.
I am excited to teach the Preschool class to help the children learn something new each day at school, as they prepare for Pre-kindergarten. My goal as a teacher is to have my students understand what they are learning and then use that knowledge in real world situations.
When I am not teaching in the classroom or going to school, I enjoy reading various types of books and also watching any Disney movie. When I am not buried in a book or watching Monster Inc., you can find me with my friends making memories to last a lifetime.
I look forward to teaching your children and meeting everyone!
