Tanya holds a degree in Early Childhood Education as well as an administrative credential. She has been working with children, of all ages, for the past 24 years. Tanya has worked in both private schools, non-profit organizations, and the college setting in the classroom and as a member of the administrative team. Tanya has been passionate about education from the get go and has enjoyed working with educators, parents and community members who are like minded. Tanya has also served as a curriculum and training specialist. She has always believed that by providing a high quality environment and program and by implementing a respectful and engaging curriculum, children will develop a passion for life and learning!
Tanya is so thankful to be the mother of two wonderful children, Reilly and Chloe who are ages 13 and 9. They continue to teach her the true meaning of life, living each day to it’s fullest, finding humor in the little obstacles life throws your way, and to find ways to express your passions in life! Tanya’s children have also attended a combination of alternative education programs and homeschooling, even while working full time. She is so happy that her daughter Chloe can also attend Discovery of Learning and her son attends a public charter for the arts. Her hope is that these wonderful educational experiences will allow them to move into life with a drive to continue learning and follow their passion!
Tanya is so grateful for the opportunity to build relationships with the children, parents, and teaching staff at Discovery of Learning. She is excited to be part of this growing and loving community.
