"William Butler Yeats best sums up my philosophy of teaching. He says, Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire.” Working at Lafayette Elementary’s Kindergarten Enrichment is the perfect place for me to do that. We have a strong, experienced, team and an unrivaled environment for play based learning to supplement the school day."

"The children in Kindergarten Enrichment have such vivid, lively imaginations. Everyday is always a fun and new experience. Children learn so much from an environment where they are able to explore and discover."

"I was working as a building para when a postion in the Kindergarten Enrichment program opened. I was familiar with the program as my son and daughter both attended. I was eager to join the team to be a part of the team providing the kind of exciting learning experiences my children had. Working with five and six year olds is what draws me to this work. Though I’d hardly call it work. It’s an adventure."
