Keisha Tolliver began at SCAN in August 2018 and quickly began to utilize her talents in two of SCAN’s programs. She works full-time as the Circle Preschool Program’s Assistant Teacher/Therapeutic Aide and also helps SCAN reach parents as a facilitator in the Family Support Program. We are thankful for her passion, dedication, and expertise which make such a difference at SCAN and for the families we work with.
How did you first get involved with SCAN?
I completed my degree in Early Childhood Education at J. Sargeant Reynolds in 2017. My advisor heard about an opportunity with SCAN’s Circle Preschool Program and thought of me. I’ve always wanted to work with children with special needs. I began as the Circle Preschool Program Assistant Teacher/Therapeutic Aide last August.
What inspires you to stay involved with your work at SCAN?
Knowing that even if a young child doesn’t remember, we are making a difference in their life. At Circle Preschool we help teach them skills and lessons that will take them throughout life. It has also been helpful for me to learn to think and speak on their level. I’ve taken lessons learned in the classroom to other parts of my life and I feel blessed to be here.
