      I’ve been a Early Childhood specialist for over 30 years and help start 5 different schools including my own business in Portland for 16 years and currently I’m in Guatemala starting another school here. I’ve been in Guatemala for 4 years but want to return to Portland one day soon and this community seems like a perfect place for me. Be great opportunity for me to help put together an Early Childhood program preschool kindergarten and a child care center. And even training other people interested in getting into early childhood development. I specialize on teaching the whole child and environmental education and outdoor classrooms are very important. That’s one thing I can add to the community. Of course I have other skills, but this seems like it could be a very beneficial addition to the community. 🙂

      I’m not in the field but would be delighted to be of assistance, if possible. Do you have exposure to helping extremely gifted children? When I was raising my own, few of the teachers could cope with a child that thought both more deeply and more quickly than they did, and was often also better-read.

      Hello, yes, that is a whole unique field of its own, gifted children. I do not have experience in that realm yet. I tend to work with more average learning children and have had a bit of experience working with down syndrome autistic and other abled children. So there’s definitely a need for also addressing the gifted children. Thank you for responding and reaching out about that aspect. 🙂

      Hi Carrie,
      I spent many years of my life as an educator and childcare provider and I very much hope that we can create an environment that welcomes children in to learn and grow with us and teach us as well. I have 2 young granddaughters in the Portland area and moved here mostly to be part of their growing up. I would love to see us hosting young children and would happily participate!
