Hello, I am Miss Faye. I am so excited and thrilled to be joining St. Mary Child Care Center as a Lead Teacher in Room 7. Our time in the classroom will be filled with lots of learning, fun and new adventures.
I received my Associate Degree from Henry Ford Community College and my CDA from Grand Rapids Community College. I have been an Associate Teacher, teaching preschool for 4 years at Kent Intermediate School District in Grand Rapids. I have been a summer camp teacher for preschool/kindergarten for 7 years. I am CPR certified, a Diversity Champion, Equity Team Leader and have been an Odyssey of the Mind Coach for 4 years.
I grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan (lots of snow). I am married to my husband Hany, and have two college age children. George is a business major and Linda is a special education major. My family is my daily inspiration.
I am a very adventurous person and like to try new things. I have eaten fried grasshoppers (delicious), tried duck mousse, swam with sting rays (they are very slimy), been on a sail boat, even though I am not a good swimmer, been in a cave with live bats, and almost tried zip lining, but I couldn’t do it.
Some of my favorite, favorite things to do are:
Cooking. My family members have many food allergies and restrictions that challenge me to be very creative with meals.
I like hot weather. I love walking and picking wild grape leaves. Summer is my favorite season.
I love reading crime/mystery books.
Soccer is my favorite sport. I played soccer in elementary school.
My favorite vacation would be any place sunny and hot.
