My name is Theresa Vitello and I am so excited to be here. I am from Chicago but have lived in Yakima long enough to raise three grown sons and now a grandson. I have been involved with Early Childhood Education and Parent Education for 17+ years. I love working with young families and their children. So much happens in those first five years. It is truly amazing. Socially, emotionally and academically they are learning every second of the day through all their senses. I feel fortunate to work with children and with our staff who share my passion for this work. Parenting is the most important job any of us will ever have. Assisting with that as teachers is the most rewarding job I can ever imagine.
