Over to Tina…
I love working in early education and care because I believe learning is happening all the time, particularly through play. I have a strong passion to connect, interact and build positive relationships with children. I enjoy guiding children to grow and learn through to play. I sharing opportunities for children to explore, discover, imagine and create in their environment.
Throughout my career I’ve been most proud of my interactions with the children which include the simplest things like the children waving their hands at the end of the day and saying “bye bye, Tina”. When they run to me with excitement and hugs I can see them light up and I’m reminded of how much the children care for their educators just as we care for them.
When I’m not at Choklits I enjoy going for walks, being at the beach watching the sunrise and sunset. I also love to listen classical music and watch soap opera.
The cutest thing a child has ever said to me was actually my daughter who mimicked my words when she was 2 years old. When I was comforting and patting a dog, I said “sweetie, it’s alright, calm down”. My daughter walked up to our dog and used her cute voice “sweetie, it’s alright, calm down” and gave the dog a gentle pat on the head. I thought that was very cute because she didn’t know the meaning of calm down.
