Hi, I'm T.T. Tracy!
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I've been teaching young children for the past 12+ years, and I am very passionate about what I do. I'm currently a student at Milwaukee Area Technical College receiving an Associate's Degree in Early Childhood Education, where I will graduate in May of 2017. I'm a very nurturing person and I think children work best when they are comfortable in their surroundings. As a teacher, I think it's very important to get to know a child's family to get a better understanding of what kind of environment a child comes from.
What is your philosophy on and approach to behavioral management?
Each child is different and first you have to understand the child, and you have to be fair and consistent.
Who was your favorite teacher and why?
My favorite teacher was my 6th grade teacher Mrs. Flagg. She was motherly but firm. She taught the class about the importance of hygiene and how above all things people would remember you by your character.
Do you have experience working with children with special needs?
I have taken college courses in this field, but I have no 1 on 1 experience.
I have a Early Childhood license in the state of Wisconsin to operate a childcare facility. I have many certifications, but no degrees at this time.
