“Great leaders don’t set out to be a leader… they set out to make a difference. It’s never about the role, always about the goal”
Bekkie-Jae | Compliance and Quality AdvisorBekkie-Jae loves working with children and engaging them in tasks and games designed to promote analytical thinking skills and cooperation, and assist them in working with others to resolve conflicts and encourage cooperation.
Young children learn from playing, questioning, and experimenting I love using play and other instructional techniques to help children’s development. For example, I may use storytelling and rhyming games to teach language and vocabulary or improve a child's social skills by having them work together to build something in a sandbox.
I am passionate about making a difference in a fun, safe and educational environment.
