Cecilia Idih

Preschool Lead Teacher

Cecilia started with A World of Friends 4 years ago as a volunteer and had the desire to obtain her degree in Early Childhood Development. That desire came to fruition this past May when she obtained her AA degree from Baltimore City Community College. Cecilia made the Dean's list twice while attending BCCC and cannot wait to start her new position this 2019-20 school year. She loves children and has three grown children of her own, which includes a set of twins. 

Professional Development

Professional development is a continuum of learning and support activities designed to prepare individuals for work with and on behalf of young children and their families, as well as ongoing experiences to enhance this work. Professional development (PD) for the early childhood education is essential to providing high-quality services to children. (naeyc.org)
