Meet Miss Amanda!
Hello Toddler Two families! My name is Miss Amanda and I joined the Children Central team in October, 2017. I am happy to say that I am very excited to return as the Lead Teacher in Toddler Two for your child after being out for maternity leave.
I have earned my Associate’s Degree in Early Childhood Education, Pre-K to 4 from Bucks County Community College in 2014. I am studying to earn a Bachelor’s in Special/Elementary Education from Grand Canyon University. I am also working on obtaining my TEFL certification, which will teach me skills used for ESL students. I have always known that I love working with children of all ages. When I was younger, I enjoyed babysitting. While earning my Education degree, I did part of my fieldwork at Goodnoe Elementary School. During my time there, I formed a close connection with the children that made me absolutely certain that teaching children was something I wanted to do for my career.
I have two children and both attend Children Central. My daughter Emma is four years old and is in the Pre-K class; my son Ryder is in the Infant Room. My children are my whole life, as I would do anything for them. I look forward to meeting everyone again and to welcoming the new families to the Toddler Two classroom.
Children are my life and I cannot wait until I meet yours!!
Meet Miss Samira B.
Hi. My name is Miss Samira. I am very excited to become a teacher in Toddler Two and join the Children Central family. I love being around kids, and will care for each child as if they were my own. I am excited to teach new things each day to the children in my classroom. My goal and method is to teach both to entertain and educate. I love engaging our little ones in fun learning activities, such as reading books and stories, teaching colors, shapes, numbers, singing, dancing, arts and crafts, and sensory play.
I have been working in child care for approximately 5 years. I enjoy teaching children and seeing them grow physically and mentally. I strongly believe that it is important to provide loving care for children within a fun and enriched environment, while making sure to meet developmental and educational goals for each child.
I previously worked as a French tutor for two years while I was working on getting my Phlebotomy Technician certificate from Bucks County Community College. I then worked as a lab assistant for a couple of years. I realized that my love for working with kids, plus my life experiences with children were much stronger than working in the healthcare field.
I plan to soon start studying to earn a CDA (Child Development Associate) credential program. I have obtained a certificate in Health and Safety Basics from Better Kid Care Program. I am also certified in CPR.
Personally, I am a mother of a 3 year old girl who has joined the Children Central family with me. She is my life inspiration and joy. In addition to loving working with children, I also have a love for cooking, gardening and listening to music.
I am an enthusiastic and responsible person and look forward to meeting you and your children in the Toddler Two class!
