Little Green Dragons

For children 3.5 to 4.5 years of age.

 

The Little “Green” Dragons classroom is painted a luscious lime which represents nature, health, and our eco-system. It creates a calm and relaxed learning atmosphere. Green can also filter negativity, which puts students and teachers at ease and into a positive state of mind.

 

The color green promotes a sense of peace, harmony, renewal, youth and generosity.

Ms. Dawn graduated from New Open World Academy High School in Koreatown, Los Angeles and earned a bachelor’s degree in Communicative Disorders and Deaf Education from Utah State University.

With a big family, Ms. Dawn grew up with many cousins, nieces and nephews, which nurtured her love for working with children starting from a young age. Caring for her relatives has made Ms. Dawn passionate about childcare and inspired her to pursue a career in education. She chose to major in Speech Language Pathology, in hopes to help improve speech impairments in children, especially in their early years of development.

 

In her free time, Ms. Dawn enjoys trying foods from different cultures, singing, knitting, going to the gym, and caring for her adopted Pomeranian dog, her fur baby Yoshi.

She worked with many families in a diverse community and feels extremely grateful for the fellow educators who guided her in the journey of child development.

 

Ms. Doris believes children develop and learn from hands-on experiences and meaningful interactions. She practices strategies that facilitate confidence, foster independence, and guide them into a positive self-mindset.
