Ms. Patricia Tavera
Patty has been working in child care for seven years. She didn’t realize she had a gift for working with children until Ana Heyn asked her to help out in her in-home daycare several years ago. Before long Patty decided to learn more about children by attending some training courses. “It’s very important to love children if you want to work with children,” she said. “If somebody is working with children for the money, then they are in the wrong business. There is a lot of satisfaction and reward in working with children. I enjoy being with them, watching them, and being part of their development.” Patty has four children of her own, ages 12, 9, 6 and 3.

She's a happy, outgoing person, and working with children makes her feel complete. "Waking up each day and coming to work gives me a tremendous feeling of satisfaction," she said. "I hope I bring a smile to each child's face and make a meaningful difference in the lives of these children that I have the privilege of getting to know." The only other profession Martha ever considered was nursing because she likes to help others. “These children keep me laughing and feeling young,” she said. “I just love being part of their lives."
