Hello! My name is Leila and I teach Play & Learn classes and Family Music classes. I have learned so much about children from working at Gymboree Play & Music; things I never would have known had it not been for the kids in my play classes! I love teaching at Gymboree because these kids put a smile on my face everyday! It makes me so happy to know that I affect these children in any way, whether it be talking with them or just blowing bubbles for them to catch. I love all of my classes that I teach, but I especially love the Play & Learn 3 kids who are still learning to walk! It's great to see them go from barely crawling to walking and talking!
I love being able to witness the developmental stages that these kids go through.
One of my favorite memories of working here at Gymboree Play & Music would have to be one of the first times I taught a Level 3 Play & Learn class. One of our parents came in and asked me how she could help her child to start crawling, because he was a little behind developmentally. I took a guess on something that could help the child out, and it ended up working fantastically! I even got to see him learning how to walk, and now he's running around everywhere!
I know that when I have children, I will be bringing them back to Gymboree. Everything I learned from working here I will be able to use to be a better parent when I do eventually have children of my own.
Class Type: Play & Learn
