My name is Vanessa and I'm a teacher in the Full Day Fours program at the Central Family Center. I've been teaching early childhood for over 10 years and I love being a part of the early childhood programming here in Shakopee. My classroom is a welcoming environment designed to allow each child to learn through play and teacher directed activities that are age appropriate and engaging. Throughout the year, we work on letter and sound recognition, name wiriting and letter strokes, rhyming, emergent reading skills, math, social emotional development and so much more! I am dedicated to providing a safe, positive and fun learning experience for every child that comes into my classroom and I can't wait to meet you and your little learner!
