Hello, my name is Marlen Murray, and I have been at Cerritos College Child Development Center for 7 years after doing my practicum at the center. I have worked with all age groups, from 2 to 5, and am excited about what the new school year will bring. I am currently a Teacher in the Ocean Room working with the three year old group. I hold a Teacher Permit from the state of California and am currently working on pursuing a degree in Child Development.
I have been happily married for 10 years and am the mother of four children. I spend most of my free time with my family enjoying our time together and have a busy schedule of games and activities that keeps us on our toes.
I have been working in the Constructivist and Reggio Emilia Inspired Approach for 7 years and have been transformed through the amazing learning that children display every day. Their creativity, strength and intelligence challenge teachers to be intentional, supportive and reflective about the process of learning. Cerritos College Child Development Center has been at the epicenter of this inspiring work with children and I feel very honored to be a part of this process.
