Gremi’s Garden Grows

Good day fellow scholars: I began my road to profession during my high school years. I started at a day care center. During my stead, I pursued my love for hospitality and enrolled at the Hudson County Community College Culinary Arts program. Since then, I dedicated a good portion of time in the food and beverage industry. I was always too happy to work and be engaged in every aspect, including doing dishes and mopping to bathrooms and trash. I learned early on that hard work and dedication defined who I was, who I am, and who I will be. During a time of temporary relocation I took on a role as Case Manager for a mostly Hispanic community. Here I fell in love with psychology. Soon after going back home I enrolled in the Psychology program at Argosy University in Sarasota Florida. I applied much of what I learned to how I performed my duties, how I made hiring choices, and more importantly, how to be. On the home front, I applied what I learned when engaging with my family and friends, and in doing so, I have been privileged to inspire my grandchildren grow up with curiosity and a deep love for adventure. My family is my ultimate love, and my grandkids are my greatest motivators for wanting to pursue an educational path that allows me the opportunity to inspire a young mind. Taking a moment to reflect, I have come full circle. Evaluating the things that I have done, and the strides I have made towards positive professional growth, I return to the place where it all began, school and child care. 

Pruning, potting, and regenerating. I dare you😉

  1. Something I can learn from hands-on activities is how I can interact with other people. For instance, working in a garden is a way to make new friends. When working in a garden, you can work with other people to make an empty space look beautiful. Working with others is a great way to earn communication skills.

  3. I love your website and the name. It is so relatable to working with young children. I feel that if I plant the seeds of knowledge, love, nurture, and encourage my students it will help them flourish into whatever their heart desires. Their outcomes will be determined by the kind of soil they are planted in. I found these two quotes that go well with your site.
    “Caring for children is like planting seeds of knowledge. You sprinkle them with love and patiently nurture their growth to help them discover tomorrow’s dreams. “ Unknown
    “Every child is a different kind of flower, and all together, makes this world a beautiful garden.” Anonymous
