About Me

I have over 25 years of experience in the field of Early
Childhood Education.  I have worked in a variety of settings
from an urban homeless shelter to a corporate child care center
to a Yeshiva.  Each experience has taught me something new
about the field and myself.  All of these experiences have helped
me understand and appreciate the diversity of our field.

Many providers wrote how they loved the drawing
activity and appreciated that the workshop was hands-
on.  Others wrote how they enjoyed thinking back to
their childhood and realized that they could create the
same treasured moments for their children. Our
providers realized now that children can advance their
development while simultaneously having the time of
their life.

activities. She was enthusiastic and high-energy.

Sharon's understanding of child development and
appropriate curriculum for preschool aged children is
rock-hard, based in both a strong theoretical
understanding and her own experiences as a classroom
teacher and program director.
