Belinda Garcia, teacher in our Doobim (toddler) Class, has been teaching toddlers for about 13 years. Belinda has also taught in the kindergarten level as well as school-age children in after school programs. Belinda has an associate degree in early childhood education.
God has blessed Belinda with two sons: Mark is in his 20’s and no longer lives at home and Kyrehl is a teenager who of course, still lives at home. God has also blessed Belinda with her perfect match, her husband Reynolds, who is also her best friend. They enjoy being active outside with their boys enjoying God’s beautiful creation. Belinda believes that each child is a unique individual who needs a secure, caring and stimulating atmosphere in which to grow emotionally, intellectually, physically and socially. To help children meet their fullest potential in these areas Belinda provides an environment that is safe, supports risk taking and invites a sharing of ideas. Three things that she believes are important to establish this environment are, promoting respect for all things and people, allowing child’s natural curiosity to direct his or her learning and, the teacher acting as a guide. Belinda says she is “so happy to be a part of the terrific team at CBE ELC,” and looks forward to another wonderful, fun filled school year at our Early Learning Center!
