4-Day AM and Junior Kindergarten Teacher
A grad school classmate recommended Park West to me in 2008, and after coming on as a Parent-Toddler Facilitator I quickly realized how special the program, staff, and community were/are, and never left! Unless you're an early childhood educator or have experience in another area at more than one preschool, it's probably hard to imagine just how different preschools can truly be. Having worked in other programs, it didn't take me long to realize how amazing Park West is. Between the sense of community that exists at every level, the commitment everyone has for creating the best learning environment possible for the children, and the experience and talent of the staff, it's been a great place to share, learn, and grow.
