Lead Infant/Young Toddler Mentor Teacher
Hello, my name is Wendy Pugh and I am the Infant and Young Toddler Program Lead Teacher here at Building Blocks Preschool. I have worked at this school before Suzanne and Joe Gabli became the owners in 2004. I have worked as a Preschool Teacher and in 2006 I have been an Infant and Toddler Teacher. My goal in life is to constantly keep expanding my horizons, and one of my favorite ways is spending time with children. They are a continual source of joy to me I have been working with young children for over 20 years, and the wonder of watching a child discover and learn still grows with each year that goes by.
Most days I feel the children teach me more than I could possibly teach them. They have so much to offer the world, and I am honored to be a part of their discovery of this life. ONE of my favorite activities is observing children as they explore new materials. I got a lot of practice with my own two children, who are now young adults. I was born and raised in Michigan. love the Indian River area in Northern Michigan. Being in tune with nature is very important. I am a recycler and I see how things can be recreated and reused. Respecting our environment is very important to me.
I also love living in this area where it is so easy to find fun activities to do outside. Each season is exciting and there is so much to do in and around the Huron Valley area. I have thousands of hours of work experience, hundreds of hours of training and I have been working towards earning an Early Childhood degree. I am currently enrolled at OCC to complete my Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education. I am so excited for this wonderful experience of working with such great staff at an amazing school. Children are vivacious and make life so exciting. Each day is a new experience and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to spend my time here.
