“Teaching helps to ensure that we are creating an open-minded and accepting world.”
Originally from Florida, Carlee says she was starving for a career change when she moved to Philadelphia. She wanted to find a profession she was passionate about and after spending some time volunteering, she decided to give early childhood education a try.
Carlee always knew she loved children and the idea of supporting them through their important years. She believes children are the future.
She says, “More than ever we need children to learn acceptance and tolerance. We need our children to accept diversity and understand diversity.”
Carlee was recommended to PIC because of its progressive, supportive, and creative environment. She is excited and honored to be part of the PIC family as she continues to explore the field of early childhood education and development.
When Carlee is not teaching, she enjoys gardening and working on anything outdoors. An avid science lover, she also likes to explore local nature areas.
Carlee is passionate about animal welfare and has four dogs and a cat, all rescues, with her partner. She one day hopes to have an animal sanctuary to bring animals and children together in a therapeutic way.
