KAILYN WASHINGTON

Teaching Assistant 

Hello, my name is Kailyn Washington. I grew up in Avon, Indiana, and graduated from Avon High school. I have 6 years of experience working with children. One of the things I enjoy the most with working with children is knowing that I am apart of helping them excel in their early education years.  I am currently in college working toward a medical imaging degree, along with getting my CDA license.

ERRIA BROWN

Teaching Assistant 

Hi, my name is Erria Brown. I have been in the field for 1 year and 7 months. Next year I plan to further my education and start working toward my CDA. What I love most about this field is seeing their little faces light up when they have accomplished something right and they are so proud of themselves. I also enjoy watching them grow into their own little personalities. All and all, I am just a person that really loves being around kids especially babies.
