HEY, Miss A!

Andriana Skalkos

Early Childhood/ Early Childhood Special Ed.

Hi there, and thanks for stopping by the About Me page on Hey, Miss A! As you navigate the site, it might be helpful to understand who I am and my outlook on early childhood education and what fuels my passion for the field. I'll keep it short and sweet:

I consider early childhood to be the most important phase of a person's development. Accordingly, I've dedicated my career in education to bringing innovative ideas to all things early childhood. The driving force for me is not necessarily my student's "aha" moments but rather all the moments in between. In that way, I try to honor the process of learning as a continuous and lifelong experience. The words of Maya Angelou  beautifully encapsulate the sentiment that learning is much like life. In her words,  "When you learn, teach, when you get, give."
