When I was a university student, I did volunteer work in Cambodia and Thailand. I taught children Korean and Art. After my return, I continued teaching children as a volunteer. I became a teacher and for seven and a half years, I taught children who ranged in age from 3-13. I especially enjoyed teaching the little ones. They learn and grow so quickly and I am happy to see them every day and be a part of their lives.
I earned a Bachelor’s degree in food and nutrition in 2006 at Sungshin Women’s University in Seoul, Korea. I have always been interested in learning about children. In college I took courses such as: Parent Training Program, Development and Education of Young Children, Introduction to Business related to Young Children and Nutrition for Growth and Development.
I live in Levittown, PA. I am originally from South Korea. I met my husband in Korea when he was doing his military service. We moved to his hometown and I am glad to be here with him. We try to go and tour around Pennsylvania whenever we have the opportunity. I like to listen to music, sing, be outdoors, cook, walk my dog, and spend time with family!
Hello, I am Miss Bonnie. I am very excited to have become a part of the Children Central family and look forward to meeting your family!
I joined Children Central in November, 2018 as a Twaddler Room teacher. I attended the University of Tampa, where I earned a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Education and a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in English, with minors in both writing and history. I also have a technical writing degree and write stories for children and teens that I hope to one day publish as novels.
I cannot wait to teach your children and help prepare them for the Preschool class. Twaddlers are such a great age and full of love, energy, and excitement! I am looking forward to making learning fun for your child. In addition to my love for reading and doing crafts with the class, I also plan to teach fundamental life skills and engage each child socially, as we have our fun ‘learning conversations’ throughout the day!
For several years, I worked locally at Barnes and Noble and was a Children's Bookseller. I have hosted many story times, crafts, and activities for my young friends and recommended wonderful children's books. I am always happy to chat about books and make a recommendation for your Twaddler child and older siblings!
I was born right here in Langhorne, PA. and am an alumnus of Neshaminy High School. After college, I taught English as a Second Language at two elementary schools and one junior high school in Nagasaki, Japan for two years. It was an incredible experience. I frequently miss my students, the people I met, and the culture of the country and would love to return for a visit in the future.
In my free time, I love to read, travel, play with my 4-year-old niece, and listen to Broadway music or catch a live show.
I have always enjoyed working with children. I am so excited to take part in your child's life and teach the skills they will need to excel in preschool and beyond. Feel free to come to me anytime with questions!
Hi! My name is Miss Joan. I joined the Children Central family in February, 2019. I began as a Twaddlers teacher, then taught the Preschool class, and am now very happy to have returned to be a Twaddler Teacher for our older two year olds. The experience as a Preschool teacher has given me good insight into what we need to teach the Twaddlers, so that they are well prepared to go to the Preschool class.
I attended Bucks County Community College where I earned my Child Development Associate (CDA) in June 2012. I am an award winning teacher of 33 years! I was selected as a Disney Hands Teacher Honoree # 90 out of the entire United States in 2004, which made me feel quite accomplished as a teacher! My staff, students and parents celebrated my award with a special luncheon at Somerton Springs Country Club. I was featured on the Channel 6 and 10 news, and in several newspapers across the Delaware Valley! I was honored again in 2006 as The Educator of The Year for BAEYC and NAEYC! I appeared on the Channel 6 news and was interviewed for many newspapers in the Tri-State area!
I am so happy to be teaching your child in the Twaddlers class! It is an environment where I can provide the love that is essential for all the children in my class. It is important to me that every child has a sense of accomplishment and is truly celebrated when they attain their goals! I love interacting with the children, as they learn new and exciting things each and every day! Incorporating the curriculum, I like to utilize "The Sing, Dance, and Play" method of teaching! I have found that the fun of learning encourages children to look forward to coming to school and my classroom!
I am married to my wonderful husband Gary. We have two amazing sons Brian and Chase. In my spare time, I love spending time with my family, cooking, visiting museums, and traveling with Gary! My family means the world to me! Teaching is my life's work and my journey to promote learning and individuality! I love being a Teacher!
Hello, I am Miss Samantha. I am excited to be a part of the Children Central team and to get to know the families.
I joined Children Central in May, 2019 as a Twaddler Room teacher. I have worked in child care for 11 years before coming to Children Central.
I previously attended the Art Institute of Philadelphia and am currently working towards earning my Child Development Associates credential (CDA). While in school, I was a part-time nanny and right after college it became full-time. I became an Assistant Pre-K teacher at St. Christopher’s School before transitioning into a child care center teacher. I have cared for children ranging in age from newborn to 14 years old.
Teaching toddlers has by far been the most rewarding thing I have done in my career. Watching the children learn and figure things out is truly a special experience. I am honored to be a part of your child’s development as their teacher. I believe communication is the key in determining how a child learns and in figuring out what works best for each child. I invite questions from our families to help better your child’s experience and get them well prepared for the Preschool class.
I live in Somerton with my younger two siblings and my dog, who is very much the spoiled baby of the house. We spend most of our time at the movies or playing video/board games.
I am looking forward to meeting all of the Twaddler families!
Hello! My name is Miss Erika. I started teaching at Children Central in November, 2015. I am happy to have become a Twaddler teacher after having taught in Toddler Two. I am glad to see so many familiar faces, as I already know most of the children and their families.
I was enrolled in Bucks County Community College studying to receive an Associate’s degree in Business Administration. However, I am now very glad to be teaching in the Twaddler class, and would like to go back to school and obtain a degree in early childhood education as soon as possible. I have been working with young children since I was 15. I love working with children of all ages, as I have been in the Infant Room, Toddlers, and taught the young two year olds. I look forward to the new challenge and will enjoy teaching the older two year olds. I truly like to help children develop and learn about everything around them.
The reason why I enjoy working with children is because I love how innocent they are, and how determined they can be at such a young age. I enjoy watching them grow and prosper into the young individuals they will become. How wonderful it is to teach children what a structured day full of fun learning activities is all about, as I help to prepare them for their transition to the Preschool classroom. It is such a rewarding feeling and experience to know that I play a part in their development. I have babysat many children for family friends and I just love hearing how they are doing, how big they are getting and how much they are learning in school. I enjoy watching the faces of the children and see how much love and light are in their eyes and smiles. Nothing compares to that feeling.
I always enjoy getting to know the families here at Children Central. I am so grateful and excited to be a part of the Children Central family and am honored to be working with such amazing and talented people. I am excited to grow with the school and am thankful for the opportunity to teach your Twaddlers and prepare them well for Preschool! If I have not met you already, I look forward to the opportunity.
