Early Childhood Educator

My name is Karla. I have 8 years of experience in the Early Childhood Education field. I graduated in 2007 from Stenberg College with my ECE certificate. I am trilingual English, French and Spanish. I am a mother of two children, Miley and Nazaiah. I always knew I wanted to be a teacher since I was young. I always enjoyed helping others learn and grow. When I’am not teaching I enjoy, spending time with my family and friends, shopping, movies, parks. My favourite colour is blue, I love food which my favourites are burgers, tacos and pizza. Creatives Explorers has given me the opportunity to expand my experiences in teaching the preschool program. I look forward in helping the children accomplish they’re needs.
