Lead Toddler Teacher & Assistant Director
Hi, I’m Miss Sam. I have my Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education along with my Directors Certification. I have been working in childcare for over 10 years. My experience has primarily been with toddlers but I have worked with all ages.
Working at Brookside Children’s Early Education Center in the Toddler Room has truly given me a deeper lover for children. It is a family environment that makes me feel welcome every time I walk in the door. I also love working for BCEEC because I get to watch the children develop. Teaching the children and preparing them for life also gives me joy in working at BCEEC.
I am also the Assistant Director of BCEEC! This has been a wonderful opportunity for me! I enjoy helping to keep the center organized and running for all the families and staff.
I believe my passion for children has come from the love of my 2nd grade teacher and also my large family. I have 4 older sisters, I nephew and 3 nieces. I have no children of my own except for my horse, Cinnamon! Cinnamon is my pride and joy in life and I have been with him since he was born. I enjoy taking care of him and riding him for pleasure! Besides spending time with Cinnamon, I like spending time outdoors and watching movies. I plan on sky diving, bungee jumping and traveling across seas in some of my outdoor adventures.
Assistant Toddler Teacher
Hi, my name is Sana A. Bitar. I am an assistant teacher in the Toddler classroom. My husband and I are both from fairly large families with a strong Christian background. We have two children, Amy 18 years old, Mark 14 years old. I started my career at Vista College, Berkley, California in the San Francisco Bay area.
While going to college, I worked as a babysitter for one of our next door neighbors. Later on I got a job at a family childcare called “Peace of Mind.” It was good to be able to utilize what I have learned in the classroom at my place of work. To continue my learning in the childcare field, I got a job with Head Start.
In the Fall of 2008, my family and I moved to the Lehigh Valley in Allentown, PA. In November of that year I started working for a church sponsored childcare in Center Valley called “Country Kids.” In the spring of 2011 I was introduced to Brookside Children’s Early Education Center where I found the most talented, caring and friendly staff. Since working, helping and educating kids are my favorite things to do. I found myself to be in love with my task at the Brookside Center. In my free time, I go for walks, love to listen to music and read.
