ERRIA BROWN

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.
