Outdoor Classroom Coordinator
My name is Nada Ghaneian and I have been the Outdoor Classroom Coordinator at Cerritos College Child Development Center since 2016. Prior to this teaching position I spent 8 years working and growing at UCLA Early Care and Education with children from 2 months to 5 years. In my last year at UCLA I coordinated our outdoor curriculum meetings. My educational background includes a bachelors in Child Development from San Diego State and a Masters in Early Childhood Education and Special Education from NYU. In addition to my experience at UCLA, I currently work with a non-profit organization, Peace 4 Kids, that helps support children in foster care. I am trained in Mindful Awareness practices for children. As well as a recent graduate of Next Generations Yoga for kids training. I can't wait to bring my experiences and learnings to your outdoor space.
I am excited to be at Cerritos CDC. I am looking forward to working alongside all the teachers and to learn and grow with the children. One of my driving forces in this field is getting to observe those "Aha" moments that children have.
