My name is Christian Worsey. I was born in Port Angeles and have spent my life moving from state to state as a military child. I have been in childcare for a year now and before my work in childcare I worked for the people as an HCA. Caring for the seniors of our community. I am a people person and enjoy socializing with our community. Creating an impact in the children in our care is my mission. We are all coming from our own walk of life, here I will provide an open mind and provide comfort and security for all. I am excited to meet everyone!
Tim here, I’m a volunteer at the SLE
I first started work with young children in 1996 as a children’s education worker at my church. After a few years there, I began teaching conversational English in Shanghai, China to public school students; grades pre-school through 3rd grade level. (2000-2003) I attended Clover Park Technical College in Steilacoom, WA. for a time, earning an Associate Degree in Applied Technology. (2006-2008)
From there I continued children’s work in Surgut, Russia teaching English to pre-school students, through middle school age. In China & Russia I was employed by private English schools, working within the public school system. (2010-2012)
I completed an Associate Degree program in Elementary Education at Pierce College, also a “Washington State One-Year Early Childhood Education Certificate” program through Pierce College in 2016. In 2018 I completed a Bachelor of Science Degree, majoring in Social Work, through Central Washington University. This year, I completed an Associate Degree in Early Childhood Education through Peninsula College.
Working with young children and helping in their healthy Social, Emotional, Physical & Cognitive development has been my long-term goal. I count it a great privilege to work with the children at Little Explorers and deeply appreciate the trust that has been placed in me by staff members, parents, & guardians here!
