When my daughter was 13 months old, I chose to enroll her at An Apple A Day Academy, and not only was I the parent of a student, but I soon became an employee because of the family atmosphere. That was 5 years ago, and it still doesn’t feel like work, it’s more of a family and a partnership. Throughout my time with AADA, I’ve earned many certifications including CPR and First-Aid, STAR Baby and I’ve earned an FCCPC. I’m currently on track to receive my Director’s Credentials in the Fall of 2018. My favorite things about working at AADA, in addition to the overall environment, is also that we have access to Reggio-inspired workshops, I am able to watch the children grow up, start talking and learn numbers, and I get to have an impact on not only what they learn, but how they learn it. I work with the 18 months to 2-and-a-half-year-old children, and it’s the most rewarding job, second only to being a mom to an amazing, empowered AADA student. I’m proud to be a part of the AADA family!
