Getting to Know Miss Sofia

The October entry in Learning Ladder Academy’s Getting to Know You series is Miss Sofia

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I like to spend time by my pond with my husband and two dogs. I also like taking pictures, baking and watching TV.

Why did you choose this career?

I was looking for a change and got the opportunity to be an assistant teacher and that changed my life. Knowing that I get to teach and be a role model to our future is a blessing! I’m grateful for Learning Ladder Academy giving me my own classroom. Children are now a passion of mine!

Tell us about a favorite teaching moment or time with a child…

When my whole class decided to play a game of soccer! We made teams, everyone cheered each other on, giving high fives and helping each other up if they fell. It was a great game of team work!

Favorite place you’ve been and why?

My family’s campground. I’ve been going here ever since I can remember. It’s so peaceful and relaxing! I love playing in the creek, making s’mores over the fire late at night and playing games with my family. There’s NO CELL SERVICE there!

Best advice for parents:

Turn off screen time and really enjoy quality time with your children. Make time! Always encourage and have confidence in your children.
