Hello my name is Emelie Galan. I am happy to start the new school year and am very excited to be with the children to learn, explore and have fun. I work for The Felician Sisters Child Care Center, Inc. While I spend most of my time at St. Mary Child Care Center as a full-time, co-lead preschool and Spanish teacher, this year, I will also spend time at Montessori Center of Lady teaching your child Spanish. I have seven years of experience with GSRP, (Great Start Readiness Program), working with preschoolers and teaching Spanish as a second language. Additionally, I worked with the Head Start program in Southwest Detroit as an Assistant Teacher caring for and educating primarily 3-year-old preschoolers. I have a CDA (Child Development Associate) certificate.
I grew up in the city of Allentown, Pennsylvania. In 1987, I moved with my parents to Michigan and we lived in Southwest Detroit. I married my husband, Naldo, in 1997 and together we have 3 wonderful children; 1 boy and 2 girls, (Jacob, 19-years-old, Julissa, 15-years-old and Jazmin, 12-years-old). I also have a 2-year-old Miniature Schnauzer dog named Gizmo.
These are a few of my Favorite Things:
- Movie: Notebook
- Food: Chinese and Mexican
- Season: Spring
- Animal: Dog
- Music: Anything Christian
- Color: Light Purple
- Hobby: Decorating for themes and parties
- Vacation: Puerto Rico and Disney
I look forward to a successful year getting to know your child and teaching Spanish!
