Sweet, innocent, and full of enthusiasm, Laarni is always ready to take on any task. Sometimes, one will wonder where she gets all her energy. Her bubbly personality makes her stand out from the crowd. She will always be that person with a smile on her face and a contagious laugh. Minutes after a joke has been cracked, you can still hear her laughing. She will make you feel that being happy is an easy decision and that no joke is too corny.
Laarni eagerly engages into and is willing to learn different arts and crafts. She likes to doodle, draw, and paint in her spare time. Moreover, she likes to collect children’s books. In fact, their library at home holds up to three hundred children’s books and still counting. She loves reading books to children because she aims to instill in them an intrinsic desire to read. She dreams to write and illustrate a story for the little ones. She likes being around kids because they remind her to appreciate the little things in life. She believes each child is a box full of surprises waiting to be discovered.
She feels that teaching allows her to explore her interests so she pursued a degree in early childhood education. Apart from that, she finds fulfillment in unlocking the potential of her young students. Her passion for teaching has been in her ever since she was a little girl. This came in naturally having grown in a family of educators beginning with her grandparents down to her siblings. She hopes to make a difference, one student at a time.
