Teacher Charlotte is the parent educator for the Pre-3s Class for the 2018-2019 school year. She has worked as a parent educator with South Seattle College Cooperative Preschools since 2017.
Teacher Charlotte completed undergraduate studies in International Affairs and Latin American Studies at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon, and spent the following 2 years in El Salvador where she served as a Rural Heath & Sanitation Peace Corps Volunteer.
Upon completion of Peace Corps Service, Teacher Charlotte returned to Seattle where she worked as an Elementary Program Coordinator with New Futures—a branch of Southwest Youth and Family Services. She provided students with a safe, supportive classroom within their apartment complex where they could receive homework help, counseling services, and participate in enrichment activities. Her interest in Early Learning and Parent Education arose from her experience working as a Home Visitor in The Parent Child Home Program. She visited families twice a week to demonstrate how to get the most educational value out of playing, singing, and reading with toddlers.
Teacher Charlotte naturally recognizes potential in others, and it brings her great joy to support families in cooperative preschools. She is driven by the idea that each child deserves access to services and early education programs that set them, their families, and their communities up for the best.
