Hello I am Mariah, and I am very excited to be teaching here at CPS. I have been working with kids doing nanny work since I was 15. I have always felt at ease understanding and interacting with children, often times more than with adults! While attending South Eugene High School I took child development classes and worked in their preschool for all four years. This really confirmed my love for young children and inspired me to learn as much as I can about how they develop.
Later at the University of Oregon I finished my undergrad in Early Childhood Foundations. During these four years I worked at Moss Street Children’s Center, where I gained so many skills, experiences and really learned how to develop deep relationships with kids and their families. After college I stayed at Moss street for three and a half more years, with some travels to Europe and Peru in between.
I am so excited for this new chapter at CPS! Feel free to reach out and get to know me, ask questions, or just spend time chatting about your lovely children.
