 Infant Room Teachers

Hello, my name is Tasha Brassell.  I am 35 years old and I have worked for CLC since 2008.  I have three children.  When I am not at work I like to travel with my church and spend time with my family.      

I love working with babies; they always amaze me when they start sitting up on their own but when they get old enough to give hugs and kisses that just melts my heart.  Our babies are very smart; I know this because they mimic what I say and do.  One of my babies would always point her finger and say no, no, no.   

I love my job because I enjoy being around the babies and it’s especially rewarding when they get old enough to love me back. Working with children is fun and you learn something new every day.   I also love my job, because my coworkers are like family to me.  The most challenging part of my job is it requires lots of patience, if you don’t have patience it can get very hard and discouraging.  I also don’t like when I have to tell parents their child got a hurt or bitten.  I feel bad.  My advice to a new teacher would be to not freak out; just breathe and count to 10.  But most of all I would say to make your job personal. Give to the babies just as you would your own. 

One of my favorite bible verses is Micah 6:8:  “…and what does the Lord require of you; to act justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.  “Trust in God’s timing; it is better to wait and have things fall into place than to rush and have things fall apart” is a favorite quote I try to live by. 

A few things on my bucket list are

·      Writing a book with my best friend

·      Own my own business

·      Go on a Cruise
