“You will face many defeats in your life, but never let yourself be defeated.” -Maya Angelou
As an educator, wife, and mother of three young men 30, 20, and 18 years of age, I mentored several students from the University of Washington for several years. I love and enjoy teaching, I gained my first knowledge at the age of fourteen working as a summer youth worker. I owned and operated Barbara’s First Choice Childcare. I have worked in Early Childhood Education for 35 years. I received a certificate in 2008 for Early Childhood Education and later received my AAS Degree in Early Childhood Education in March 2011 and my BAS in June 2019 in Teaching and Early Learning. I enjoy and love working in the community with children, families, and teachers. I look forward to spending this year with all the staff, children, families here at Eli Creekmore. Thank you so much for the opportunity to learn, grow, and explore together.
