In the nurturing environment of New Direction Childcare, Tiffany Holmes stands out as a dedicated Infant Teacher who has been part of our community for five years. Known for her warmth and positivity, Tiffany has a knack for fostering early development in our youngest learners. Her story is not just about teaching—it's about inspiring both children and parents with her deep commitment and creative approach.


A Legacy of Inspiration

Following in her grandmother's footsteps, a revered teacher for over 35 years, Tiffany was drawn to the world of education. She witnessed firsthand her grandmother's lasting impact on students, many of whom came forward to share how profoundly she had influenced their lives. This legacy of teaching sparked Tiffany's desire to make a similar impact, guiding her path into early childhood education.


Teaching Philosophy: Empowerment and Encouragement

Tiffany's teaching philosophy is profoundly personal and shaped by her experiences with dyslexia and her sister's challenges. "We don't have to be limited by our disabilities," Tiffany shares, reflecting on how she uses her journey to inspire her students and their families. This philosophy extends into her classroom, where she encourages her infants to overcome early challenges, such as learning to walk, instilling the resilience to keep trying despite obstacles.


Innovative Strategies for the Youngest Learners

In Tiffany's classroom, innovation comes through positivity and encouragement. She believes a positive attitude can significantly influence learning, especially for infants just starting to explore the world. Tiffany uses encouragement to build confidence in her young students, helping them take their first steps literally and metaphorically.


Creativity and Leadership in Learning

Creativity plays a central role in Tiffany's educational approach. She follows the lead of her students, allowing their natural curiosities and actions, like banging on the floor or making noises, to guide her lessons. This flexibility in teaching style helps foster a sense of freedom and self-expression among the infants, encouraging them to explore their emerging interests.


Building Bridges with Families

Tiffany values strong communication with parents, believing it's essential for extending learning beyond the classroom. She regularly shares positive updates and developmental milestones with parents, making them active partners in their children's education. This collaboration ensures a cohesive learning experience for the children at home and in childcare.

Reflecting on her childhood, Tiffany recalls her favorite memories from art class, where she was encouraged to draw and create. She brings this passion for art into her classroom, using it to brighten and inspire her teaching space and her students' learning experiences. "Art teaches us that we are colorful beings, and we should never shy away from expressing ourselves," Tiffany notes.

Beyond the Classroom: A Passion for Cooking

If not teaching, Tiffany imagines a career as a chef, another passion deeply rooted in her family traditions. Cooking is more than a hobby for Tiffany; it's a way to nourish and bring joy to others, much like her teaching. She loves exploring new recipes and sharing these culinary adventures with her family and friends.


A Call to Action for Aspiring Teachers

For those drawn to the noble teaching profession, Tiffany offers this advice: "Go with your heart and never give up. Teaching can be challenging, but it won't feel like work if your heart is in the right place and you love what you do. It feels like you're making a difference every day."
