My name is Cheryl Brown and I live in Yakima with my husband, two dogs and two cats. We are also foster parents to a wonderful 14 year old boy. I graduated from Central Washington University with a BA in Early Childhood Education with a minor in Teaching English as a second language. I began working at the Early Learning Center in August of 2012. Every day the children continue to amaze me in what they are learning and how much they are growing and changing in such a short amount of time. To me the children are like sponges so eager to absorb whatever we teach them. It's exciting to me to see the light bulb turn on when they understand something or accomplish a new skill.
