Chelsea began her career in early childhood education in 2007. She attended San Francisco State University where she received her B.S. in Child Development with an emphasis in Young Child and Family. While attending San Francisco State, she worked as a teacher’s assistant at the child development center on campus. Chelsea stayed in San Francisco for 4 years after she graduated and became a teacher at a wonderful Reggio inspired preschool. Chelsea believes that children should be looked at as strong, competent beings and that they deserve to feel secure and open to learning. Each child is special and unique with an enormous amount of potential and curiosity. This curiosity drives children to learn and to understand their world and their place within it.

Outside of the classroom, Chelsea spends time with her family, goes camping and hiking. She also enjoys traveling to new exciting places. She has traveled to many different countries where she learns about new cultures and often volunteers in the places that she visits.
