Hello, CCH community! My name is Asia. I have been working with children for the past 8 years. I started babysitting for family friends as a teenager which great into a professional nanny career all throughout college. After college, I started working at CCH as a lead preschool teacher. I currently have a bachelor’s degree in nonfiction writing with an associate in early childhood education from Columbia College Chicago. I am currently working on my master’s degree in early childhood education on a teacher licensure track with a focus in administration from Erikson Institute. I have goals of being a children's book author, daycare owner, CPS teacher, and elementary school principal. I believe as educators our goal is to create an environment where students are kind, caring, and develop a love for learning at a young age. In my free time, I enjoy reading, writing, taking nature photos, spending time in nature, practicing mindfulness/yoga, cooking, and hanging at home binge-watching shows with my beagle Boomer. I’m looking forward to working with you all and creating a kind environment for everyone!
