Mrs. Andrea M. Bobb
My name is Andrea… I’ve been on a journey and along the way I’ve learned some valuable lessons. Some through conventional education (Bachelor of Science, Kennesaw State University), some from experiences in child care, in teaching and in leadership and even more from my own personal experiences.
I have four children and grandchildren. I would have appreciated having someone to sit me down and teach me some of the things I’ve learned along the way during my years of child rearing, as an Early Childhood Educator and as a Leader.
I’d like to do that for you, if you’ll be so kind as to allow me to share what I’ve learned. I know there are many questions and even more concerns of the heart as to these great responsibilities we seem to take so lightly.
- Parenting is the most valuable of all the roles we play. As a parent, we are producing and presenting to the world all the members of its cast in this production called--life.
- Homeschooling presents great challenges for parents and children. Can it be done successfully?
- The Early Childhood Educator takes care of our most precious and valuable gems, our children.
- Leaders must be equipped to make decisions for us on a daily basis that determines the quality of our lives.
So...if you’re thinking of having a baby or you already have a few;
if you’re a teacher overworked, underpaid and underappreciated;
or you’re a leader burdened by your call and overwhelmed with responsibilities,
let us reason together and see if we can raise a standard that will leave
a lasting impact of peace on our world.
Areas of Interest:
- Workshops, seminars, and consultation on such topics as:
- Parenting workshops and seminars
- Home school setup and training
- Daycare Setup and training
- Specialized training for Early Childhood Educators
- Leadership Seminars
- Care for the Teacher Seminars
