Sophia W

Yulia Onosovskaya

Ms. Sophia got started in education when working with a science enrichment program. This grew her desire to work with children. She is enrolled in school to continue her own education and gain more knowledge about early childhood development.

“Children are our future! – says Ms. Sophia. – Play is very important for children especially at this age, because it helps develop social emotional skills, creative thinking, relationships, as well as being a stress reliever. Exchanging information with the parents is a great way to get to better understand the child and the family.”

Ms. Sophia is Portuguese and very involved in the culture. When not camping, she likes to attend Portuguese “festas” on weekends. She grew up doing Portuguese folklore dance and competing among other dance groups.

Ms. Sophia also loves to sing, especially karaoke nights with her friends. Her favorite songs to sing during karaoke are from musicals, especially Hamilton.

She is part of a members only camping club. She regularly goes tent camping.  She loves to cook, but outdoor cooking is the best.
