The May 2017 Teacher of the Month is Ms. Stefani Cooper. Stefani has worked in childcare for over 10 years and has worked for Calvary Early Learning Center since September 2016. Stefani was chosen for this award due to her relaxed, laid back attitude, her dependability, and her ability to successfully work with children that are struggling with behavioral or emotional issues. Stefani has a Child Development Associate credential and is the Lead Teacher of our Older 2s classroom. For the majority of her career she has taught PreK which is evident in the high standards that she sets for the children in her class. Stefani’s ability to create lesson plans that are ideal for children with high energy levels and shorter attention spans, her dedication to developing positive relationships with the parents of the children in her class, in addition to her flexibility on the job make her a great fit for Calvary. Stefani’s enthusiasm for young learners is obvious to all who know her and we are looking forward to her future accomplishments at CELC.
