Getting to Know Ms. Vicki

The July entry in Learning Ladder Academy’s Getting to Know You series is Miss Vicki

What do you like to do in your spare time?

I like to spend time with my family and friends, read, take walks, and attend concerts.  I also help with activities at my church.

Why did you choose this career?

I love children and love teaching them new skills. Also, I love this career because I am preparing children for the future. It is so rewarding to see the children at school age knowing that I prepared them for their future!

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

A child asked if I had any children and I said that I have two sons. The child then asked why they didn’t come to the daycare. My reply was that they are adults and have their own children. The child replied, “Wow you really must be old!”

Favorite place you’ve been and why?

Maine is my favorite place. The people are nice and friendly. Everywhere you look there is something beautiful to see. The food is great too because I love seafood and this state is the place to be!  I love the outdoors and this state rocks in outdoor things to do.

Best advice for parents:

Please let your children use the skills they have learned. As an example, let them dress themselves. Please teach your children manners and to be aware of other people’s feelings. Please read to your child as it helps with language skills. Reading also promotes conversation. Enjoy your time with your child; they grow up and become their own person!
