Ten years of Blessings

Get to know our teachers…

 Toddler Room

Hello, my name is Camilla Coleman.   I am 44 years old and I have worked for CLC since August 2017.  I have 3 children.  My oldest son, Montarious, is 28, my middle son, Ke’ Michael, is 21, and my youngest, Gabby, she is 15.  When I am not at work I like to read.  My favorite kinds of books to read are dramas and mysteries.  I joined a book club about 4 years ago.  I have a good time with these ladies. They can find the best books for us to read.   Right now we are reading Silver Sparrow. I also love a good movie.         

Working with toddlers inspires me to be a better person and helps me to look at life through the eyes of a child. My favorite part of our day is when we have circle time. I love it when they can start answering my questions about the books we read together. Our favorite book to read is Llama- Llama and our favorite song to sing during circle time is Baby Shark…  Our class is happiest during lunch time.  They love to eat and feed themselves.  Their favorite meal is Pizza.  When we get to go outside our class will throw and kick the balls all around the playground. At the end of the day we clean up and read books.  When we do this they know it is almost time to go home.  As you can see we are a very busy class.  It can be extremely exhausting to work with toddlers and you have to have patience.  But I enjoy my job; my class and my coworkers.     

My advice to a new teacher is to be fair, friendly, flexible, and to treat children like they are your own.      

My favorite bible verse Philippians 4:13- “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”   This verse reminds me to always give your best at what you do.       

 

A few things on my bucket list are

  • Ride in an airplane
  • Ride in a train
