Tammy Carriker

Assistant Two Year Olds and Toddlers (a parent child program)

Good Samaritan Day School is in my blood! I've been here, in one way or another, my entire life. My mother taught in the 3 year old program for 25 years, and retired in 2005 - just in time for the birth of my daughter. I spent many hours 'helping' in her classroom as a child myself, and later as a young adult - learning to appreciate the beauty of these little minds and hearts. I received an undergraduate degree in Psychology from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, and spent several years counseling before moving onto managing Human Resources and Payroll departments for two small companies.  I rediscovered my love for toddlers and preschoolers when my own children began attending Good Samaritan Day School, and I had the opportunity to substitute in several classes. I'm currently assisting in two 2 year old classes, as well as teaching the Mommy and Me/Toddler program.  These little people have stolen my heart!
