Meet Miss Michelle
Hi! My name is Miss Michelle and I am so excited to join the Children Central family as a Preschool Teacher! 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: being 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 Alyssa!
Hi! My name is Miss Alyssa, and I am very excited to join the team at Children Central as a Preschool Teacher! I currently attend Bucks County Community College working towards obtaining my Associate’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. I also plan to pursue my Bachelor’s in Early Childhood Education. I have also been a teacher at another preschool program for approximately the past three years.
I have dreamed of being a teacher for as long as I can remember. I will forever pride myself on following my childhood dream. I love working with kids and being along for their journey of learning, development, and those ‘a-ha moments.’ I truly enjoy playing a part in teaching my young students the things that they will use for the rest of their educational and personal journeys.
I am very excited to bring my knowledge of all that I have learned in both my classes, and previous experience as a teacher, to create an open environment. I hope to inspire the children into being their best self and to be excited to come to school and learn about so many new things in their lives. In addition to the students’ learning academically and being excited to be a part of my students’ learning journey, I also think it’s important to develop social and emotional skills. I hope to create a safe space for the children that is a very positive and nurturing environment.
Outside of being a teacher and attending school, I take dance and Zumba classes. I’ve been dancing since I was three years old and can’t dream of ever being without it. I also love spending time with my friends, going on adventures with them, taking lots of pictures along the way, and creating memories to last a lifetime.
I am looking forward to joining the Children Central team, the Preschool classroom, and to having a great year together!
