My Motivation

To learn more and more about children, how they think, reason and develop. My plans for the future are to open a kindergarten to give young children a chance to help learners develop and grow to their full potential. I also want to pursue a degree in Business studies as well as early childhood development to help me get the knowledge I need to open the kindergarten.


I believe that the child’s needs and values come first. Not only am I an caring, patient and hardworking individual.

I also believe that we learn something from children everyday as well as them learning something new from adults. So my main idea is to gain a mutual understanding, respectful and friendly relationship with the child and to help them gain knowledge and insight for the future. I believe that I can not only help your child develop in academics but on the sport field as well.



Children are the most truthful and open individuals when they are developing and growing. I am very interested in the fact that we can learn something new every day from children.


I am more comfortable with children the ages of 5+, because of my practical experiences during my studies I had more to do with children between the ages of 8 and 9 and did an au pair job for a 5 year old boy.


My strengths: I am extremely patient and care deeply for others.

My weakness: I think my patience is also my weak point because sometimes it gets the best of me.


Things that make me happy is when children learn something new. When they get excited about the little things in life and when they have a mutual understanding and relationship with you that can help you and the child to develop in the future.
