I have been in childcare since 1994. I have worked with children of all ages, but my favorite group is toddlers. When I began my career with TLE I was a toddler teacher and after about a year, I was approached with the opportunity to be the chef for the center. At first, I wasn’t sure if it was for me, but here I am 4 years later – and I love it! I have my Florida Food Handler Certification.
