About Me

Hello parents,

I would like to describe myself as a straightforward and as well as a helpful person. I am a quick learner, very ambitious, hardworking person who is very enthusiastic about taking on a new challenges. I always stay calm in stressful circumstances which helps me to achieve to have a work done quickly, correctly with attention to each and every detail.

I also pride myself on the big smile that I always wear! I love children and I love making them feel comfortable, and confident. I enjoy spending time with them and engaging in activities that they like to do like painting, reading, and going to the park.
I treat them with respect and care and my main concern is always children's health and safety.
