“There has been a lot of changes in technology, attitude towards the level of education needed, laws that changes with new governments, guidelines and expectations of children’s capability.
With the United Kingdom in the last few years looking towards the Scandinavian educational system, danish design and new innovations. I have found my knowledge and education to be of a great benefit to me since moving here in 2009.
As a professional, engaged and enthusiastic woman I believe in women’s rights and The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child. I am reflective in my approach to work. I evaluate it to insure improvements and to assess the impact so far. A project is the job description not the hours spent.
I have become very I.T. literate and able to manage my time. I am honest, direct and pride myself on being a great listener by engaging meta-communication skills to insure that I fully understand the tasks at hand.
Whilst working as a manager at a nursery, I brought in a new way of observing children day to day that helped the work force, parents and the children. I also have worked on committees over the years where I have instrumental in restructuring processes to facilitate councils and governing bodies within our financial borders.”
