My name is Karina Campa. I am the Preschool Director and teacher at St.Bernadette Catholic School.
What I aspire to be as an early childhood educator is not only helping children learn fundamental skills but getting them excited to explore new things and learning through interactive activities developing a life long love for learning. This is my goal with every child I teach. I try to engage students through fun, exciting activities because I believe if they are having fun then they are learning to their greatest potential. It is my job to help them find their particular path by giving them opportunities to fit their individual abilities. With every opportunity, keeping the interests of the child ahead of everything else in early childhood environment is my main goal.
I believe teaching with consistency and utilizing Early Childhood Guidelines and standards leads the children to great opportunities. Linking learning to the child’s real life experiences is impactful to a child’s comprehension, it allows them to visualize things.
My overall goal is to focus on the individual needs and potential of the student as well as their emotional, social, cognitive, physical, and spiritual development. I guide creativity, encourage innovative thinking, acknowledge perseverance, celebrate success, turn frustration into learning opportunities, awaken social responsibility, model fairness and justice—all while building and valuing relationships.
