Little Yellow Dragons

For children 3.5 to 4.5 years of age.

 

The Little “Yellow” Dragons classroom is painted sunshine yellow which is associated with joy, happiness, intellect, and energy

 

The color yellow produces a warming effect, arousing excitement, enhaning concentration and generating muscle energy.  It also symbolizes enlightenment, and facilitates exploration of new things with an optimistic positive attitude. This color can stimulate the nervous system and aid in communication and creativity.

When Ms. Doris is not working, she takes Charlie on a ride through the Pacific Coast Highway and spends the day at the beach with an iced coffee at hand. Ms Doris is a local alumni to Thomas Starr King Middle school as well as Marshall High School. 

Ms. Doris is currently wrapping up her degree from Cal State LA and plans to graduate next fall semester with a concentration in Child Development, which is a field she’s been in for 5 years. The passion and love for children began when she was working at LACC’s child development center. 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. 

Mr. Frank has 20+ years of experience working with children and has earned 24 units in child development. He thoroughly enjoys creating art and providing an engaging curriculum for preschool age children.

He is also an active volunteer at the Ronald Mc Donald House, Parents against Cancer Foundation, City of Los Angeles, and founder of the Hiccups Pizza Project that serves the homeless community on skid row.

 

One of the many talents of his is as a professional magician, which he has taught at Camelot as an Enrichment Class for the last nine years. 

 

Mr Frank's motto is: 

“My hero's are normal people who do great things for others.”

Ms. Savannah was born in Los Angeles, CA raised in Downey, CA, where she attended and graduated from Warren High School in 2014. Shortly after she graduated, she moved back to Los Angeles, CA in 2014 and began to pursue a degree in Early Childhood Education. Ms. Savannah is an extreme foodie and soaks up the sun at the beach any time she can. She is the youngest of one older brother and a dog mom to her fur babies Canelo and Mimi and a bunny mom to her sweet bunny Lola.

When Ms. Savannah is not working, she takes Lola to the park to run around and on walks around her neighborhood to chew on fresh grass and to dig. She also spends her weekends walking through Farmers Markets with an ice coffee in her hand and Canelo and Mimi in tow.

Ms. Savannah recently graduated with a degree in Early Childhood Education from LACC in June of 2022. Her next step is to pursue a bachelor’s degree from Cal State Dominguez Hills starting next fall semester primarily in Child Development, which is a field she has been involved in since 2018.  The passion and love for children began when she met her Step-son in 2016; that is when she decided she would pursue a career in child development to better assist her Step-son with his needs and also learn to help other children promote their learning abilities, independence and confidence. Ms. Savannah has worked with diverse families within a diverse community and is thankful for her mentors and educators who have enlightened her child development adventure.

Ms. Savannah believes that children develop, learn, and grow through hands-on experiences and meaningful interactions. She considers that a classroom should be a safe, caring environment where children are free to express themselves and allow the time they need to blossom and grow. All children are unique and have something special they can bring to their education. She uses strategies to help children communicate with their peers, teachers, and embrace the differences in others.
