Lionstein

I am a nature lover, science enthusiast and an adventure seeker! I have a passion for going snorkeling, snowboarding and discovering new things. Over 16 years of my life have been spent working first-hand with children. Most recently, the last 4 years have taken place in a classroom environment. June 2020 proudly marked my 1-year anniversary in the exemplary T.L.E. Family. I have earned my Early Childhood Professional Certificate through Palm Beach State College and am certified in First-Aid and CPR. My love for working with children was instilled in me from my Mom at a very young age. Growing up in her in-home daycare and watching her care for and nurture each and every child sparked my ambition to be just like her. She has always been my life's role model and to provide that same level of acceptance, guidance and love to the children of today, day in and day out, will forever be my as
