Takila Edwards (Lead Teacher)

I live in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where I was born and raised; I have three handsome boys and one beautiful baby girl. I love working with children and families and have been doing so for over 15 years. Children aged 3 to 5 have been my specialty but I enjoy all ages and stages of child development. Every child is different and I learn something new every day from the child's perspective. With each new day comes a new adventure.

 

My background in early childhood is the following: I have a degree in early childhood education. I was a Head start teacher for over 10 years working with low income families trying to close the education gap. I strive every day to enhance the children’s education. I am the Assistant Director here at Trinidad’s where I work directly with the teachers in the classrooms to ensure our children's best interests are being met. This way I get to meet the parents and get to know them better so that I could provide their child with a service that would meet the parents’ approval and I also instruct my teachers to do the same. My motto is “Every child deserves a chance to succeed so let's give them one.”

Ms. Melissa McFarlin - Site Administrator

Hi, my name is Melissa McFarlin and I am thrilled to be the new Site Administrator here at Trini-Dads Child Development Center. I started working in the childcare field in August of 2005 as a student teacher at Tiny Tech in Pewaukee, WI. After working there for 2 years I began working for Columbia St. Mary’s Children’s School-Generations. I was there for about 5 years, until I moved on to teaching at an elementary/middle school called Jared C. Bruce Academy. After working there I became a stay at home mom for a year. In December of 2015 I earned my Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education. I enjoy helping guide children in all aspects of their development; physical, social, intellectual, and emotional. I feel it is very important to create a positive environment for children in order for them to strive. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family. My family is a very important part of my life. My husband Marcus and I have been married since April of 2006. We have 3 children; a daughter (Mikayla) and boy/girl twins (Marcus II and Mariah). Together we enjoy going to church, hanging out with friends and our extended family, singing together, traveling, and trying new restaurants.

Personal Statement:

 

As an advocate for children and families I most enjoy working with children and families relating to the day to day challenges of this adventure we call life. I pride myself on being understanding and relatable. I, myself am a proud parent of two very intelligent children. While it is a joyous job it is also a very difficult job. I understand the hardships of parenting and teaching. I also understand that if we are to provide children with the very best start possible than as parents and caregivers we must work as a team.

 

I simply aim to forge the bridge and as a team assist with the skills necessary to help you be the best team possible for the children and families whose lives we influence. I don’t have all the answers but I know that together we can find solutions to life's challenges that fit your family dynamics. I honestly believe that we are all equipped with what we need to succeed. I aim to be more of a side– kick to your already super family. My work is enjoyable as it lends me the opportunity to share and learn with those that I come in contact with, thus making all parties lives richer and more meaningful as a result.
