I thought you would like to know a bit about my experience, education and why I feel qualified to teach and offer the services we provide.
I graduated college (Beaver College, currently Arcadia University) with degrees in Early Childhood Education and Elementary Education. I also attended graduate classes at both Beaver and Temple University.
I taught all age groups from pre k to 7th grade. I also worked as a Program Specialist for adults and children who were mentally, physically and medically involved. I remained in that field for 16 years.
We relocated to Naples, Florida. I was unable to secure employment in social services therefore I returned to the classroom. Within a few years I became the executive director of a preschool, and worked as an Educational Consultant, helping to start a new type of preschool. In addition I was the owner of 2 nanny training and placement agencies, both were sucessful. I sold my agency to another professional in 2010. I then began taking online classes and decided I wanted to become a certified parent instructor. I then developed my first course for parents seeking to divorce. My curriculum was approved by DCF per statute 61.21. I then continued to create new courses after much research.
I became a certified Parent Instructor as I felt my experience could help others. I have been a wife and mother, then a single parent and co-parent, followed by a step-parent and part of a blended family. I have learned much, frequently from my errors. But all is well that ends well. My sons are all grown, and I have the privilege of being a "Mimi" to 4 grandsons! I have also been happily married for 31 years!
