I started at Giggle Gang in September 2009. Working in the infant room gives me so much pleasure and joy. The icing on the cake is having the opportunity to watch them grow each and every day. My favorite thing to do is getting down to the children’s level and interacting with them. I am from Albania and live here with my husband and our two children. We love to spend time as a family outdoors and we also enjoy sightseeing.
I’ve been working at Giggle Gang since February 2008. I was born in Romania and I came to the United States in 1999. I have a Masters degree in Elementary Education. I’m married and I have two kids. I have always loved working with children of all ages for over 25 years. I love them and treat them like my own kids. I like to go on trips, read and knit. I speak several languages fluently: English, Romanian, French, Hungarian and also some Russian. I look forward every day to being in my classroom with the children, teaching them and having fun.
I have worked at Giggle Gang since December 2015, I have completed my Bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education theory. I am continuing my education with correspondence work as well. I grew up wanting to work in the education field and am blessed to have been given the opportunity here at Giggle Gang. When I am not teaching, I enjoy running with my husband and our two dogs. My favorite Bible verse is Philippians 4:6 ” Do not worry about anything, but instead pray about everything”.
