She has a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree in Psychology, which she always planned on using towards child development and education. She is very passionate about teaching because it allows her to help children find who they are meant to be, to reach their potential, to grow in happiness and self-love, with confidence and independence. It is the most important and rewarding job, since she gets to be a part of shaping our world’s future adults. Starting something new and having a new teacher often brings feelings of excitement and anxiety, but her goal is to create a smooth transition and a safe space for us to work together and take advantage of this learning opportunity»
