Meet Miss Edivia!
Hi. My name is Miss Edivia. I have been a part of the Children Central family since August 2014. I have been in the education field for approximately 20 years, which includes my being a teacher to the physically, mentally, and emotionally challenged. I truly have a passion for teaching and caring for children. I earned a Child Development Associates credential (CDA) in 2010 at Manor College. Helping and watching children learn and grow to their fullest potential gives me great satisfaction and pride in my work.
I have been a Floater Teacher at Children Central since 2014, as I love to work with all of our age groups! You may find me helping in any of the classrooms from Infants to Pre-Kindergarten, and even filling in as the chef when Mr. Dave goes on vacation. I added ‘Spanish Teacher’ to my accomplishments at Children Central, as I usually teach the Twaddlers, Preschool and Pre-K classrooms Spanish on Tuesday mornings. I am fluent in both Spanish and English. Knowing two languages is extremely rewarding, it enables me to have the privilege of communicating with so many more people.
I studied and lived in Puerto Rico, where I was able to learn how to speak and write Spanish. I attended school, which gave me the chance to learn a second language. This opportunity helps me to empathize with the children, as I know what it is like to learn a new language and how fun and rewarding it can be! I always enjoy teaching the children Spanish in a fun and entertaining way. I utilize puppets, songs, games, and dancing to make the learning interactive, and a very enjoyable learning experience for your children.
I have two children of my own and a wonderful husband, and have lived in the city of Levittown, PA. for most of my life. I did also live on the beautiful island of Puerto Rico with my parents and siblings for several years. I enjoy spending time with my family, cooking, and going to the beach and Sesame Place with my youngest child and grandchildren. I also enjoy cutting hair; I am a licensed Cosmetologist. I love being a teacher at Children Central and am always excited to meet the new children and their families every year.
Meet Miss Kim!
Hi! My name is Miss Kim and I am a Floater Teacher at Children Central. I joined the Children Central family in February, 2023. As a floater, you may find me assisting in any of our classrooms from Infant to Pre-K. This makes each day interesting and rewarding, as I get to teach children of all ages throughout the school.
I do love working with children of all ages from Preschool to High School. I take pride in knowing that in some form of fashion that I have a hand in enriching the lives of our children. It is amazing to watch children learn and grow while exploring the environment around them.
I have over 20 years’ experience in Early Childhood Education and have worked with all age groups. I have earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education from Morris Brown College in Atlanta, Ga. I also have earned a Master of Education in Management from Strayer University. I hold a Private School Teacher certification: N-K and an Emergency Permit: Day-to-Day Substitute K-12 certificate. I am also a Paraprofessional at Pennsbury High School in the Life Skills program.
When not working, I like spending time with family and friends. I have a daughter, Kendell, and all I do is for her. She is a Materials Science Engineering major at Drexel University.
I am enjoying being a part of the Children Central family.
Meet Miss Sam!
Hi! My name is Miss Sam and I started working at Children Central in May 2023 as a Floater Teacher. I love lending a hand in all of the classrooms.
I am going to be a sophomore at West Chester University, where I am studying for my Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education, grades Pre-k to 4th with. a minor in mathematics, grades Pre-k to 8th.
Starting at a very young age, I knew that I always wanted to be a teacher, especially for the little ones. I have a strong passion for helping children, and the biggest reward that I always tell people is the smile that appears across their face when they laugh or giggle! I was a counselor in training at a summer camp from the ages of 13-15 where I worked with 4 to 7-year-olds. I also started babysitting a few family friends at the age of 14.
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, going for a walk/run, reading a good book, and watching Philly sports with my dad.
I absolutely love the environment here at Children Central, and I look forward to getting to know all of the children and their families!
