My Role at Discovery Zone

I am the K20 teacher and have been working at Discovery Zone since September 2015.

My Background & Family

My name is Charlett Maceira and I have been working in the Early Childhood Development profession since October of 1988. Through my career I have worked with mainly pre-school and school age programs. I have assisted in infant / toddler programs but my heart is working with the 3 - 5 year old children. I began my career in a mentoring program and took classes and trainings that allowed me to begin teaching a classroom of my own after three years. I was a very active member in our church's children's ministry when my children were growing up. I was a Leader in the Missionette Program and volunteered to work in the church nursery on a rotating basis. I also taught Sunday School for 4th and 5th grades. It was a very fulfilling and rewarding way to serve God and the children of the community.

Why I Work With Kids

Working in Early Childhood Development chose me rather than me choosing it. I felt a calling to work with children from my early teen years. It has always been a rewarding experience to watch children learn, grow and explore the world around them.

My Favorite Bible Verse

“And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.”  Romans 8:28

A Few of My Favorite Things

Carnations, yellow roses, family time with my grandkids, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Hershey Chocolate, Pepsi, cherry Coke, and going to the beach!
