I am so excited to be a part of a beautiful new center with owners in which I share their passion for developing a strong foundation for your child’s social, emotional, physical and academic growth. A strong parent-child-teacher partnership is critical for each child’s success and I am looking forward to getting to know you as well as your child.
I have an Early Childhood/ Special Education Degree from Bowie State University. I am a seasoned teacher with years of experience teaching children. I love to “catch children being good” and send home happy notes or happy grams.
On a personal note, I am married to Jay Vrable and have a 16 year old daughter, Rachel, and a little dog named Tucker. Our family enjoys trips to park, library, movies, the neighborhood pool, and vacations at the beach.
Please call me or write me a note with any questions or concerns you may have. My email address is Barbara@joykidslearning.com. I have always enjoyed getting to know the parents as well as the children. I am looking forward to meeting you July 2nd. I will be the one with the biggest grin!!
