I am a mother of two girls, one of which attended Kaleidoscope Preschool in 2001-2002. I have always enjoyed teaching and watching children learn so in 2003 I started to sub in Kaleidoscope Preschool, and in 2009 I got my Early childhood Level I certification. I have been teaching full time at Kaleidoscope Preschool since March 2009.
