I have a deep passion and understanding of the different ages and stages of early childhood. I began this journey when I found out that I was going to be a mother just under 13 years ago. To ensure that I could be a great mother, I started taking parenting courses to understand the development of a growing child and I fell in love with becoming a Teacher in the early education setting.
I am proud to say that I graduated from South Puget Sound Community College in June of 2019 with my Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education. My personal goal is to engage with each child on a deep level that supports their individual developmental goals while providing interesting activities that incorporates the magic and wonder of childhood. I am a firm believer that it takes a village to raise a child, and I am so thankful to be a part of your village.
My name is Ephesia and I am so honored to be apart of this community. I started in child care about 6 years ago when I was in high school working as a nanny. I moved in with a family and they had a home school curriculum they had me teach their kids. I fell in love with the teaching and got a strong start as a teachers aid. I started running my own class but I wanted a more creative environment.
My friend connected me with Infinite and Im really excited to teach at school that shares my values.
