Skills & Abilities
Before entering into ECE, I was the assistant manager for Rack room shoes for three major areas: Avondale, Glendale and Arizona Mills Mall. I managed a staff of 15-23 accumulated.
In ECE, you’re still selling a product, that product is your center. At Kinderland, I was given the opportunity to flourish by giving tours of the facilities I was at and I presented what the facility offered to encourage enrollment at the school.
In any childcare setting, it’s crucial to have excellent communication skills with parents and staff. I communicated with parents and staff on a regular, every day basis on paper, by phone or in person.
I am a strong leader, however I take direction very well. I am a stickler and finishing my tasks and always try to meet the expectations of those who supervise me.
LEAD TEACHER KINDERLAND PRESCHOOL AND DAYCARE JULY 2015-APRIL 2016
While at Kinderland, I was responsible for many areas. I would occasionally give tours, manage staff, contact parents and create curriculum. I was proficient at writing reports for injured children and communicated with parents by phone and face-to-face. There were light cleaning duties: dishes, mopping, sanitizing toys, sweeping and cleaning tables. I worked very closely to use my knowledge of Quality First and implement the settings required according to QF regulations, as well as, my director’s expectations. I resigned from this position to pursue further employment with a company that encourages wholesome values and room for growth.
LEAD TEACHER CACTUS KIDS MARCH 2014-JULY 2015
My time at Cactus was spent mainly as a Lead Teacher, when I initially was hired I was to be an aide. Quickly, I was moved up to hold my own classroom. I was responsible for creating my own curriculum, with the help of a sample packet of ideas. I also taught the children manners, responsibility and accountability. I encouraged independence while following the Quality First “Learn through Play” method. I kept my room tidy, occasionally helping floaters mops, sweep or vacuum. I decided to resign from this position due to the change in quality of the center while they replaced directors’ and staff.
