Hello, friends! My name is Taneha Sierra, and I was born and raised in New York City. Through the years, I visited Ithaca to see family and fell in love with the slow pace this little town has to offer. I finally made the big move out here when I was 26 years old. The last 10 years have been a blessing to me. I met my husband only a year after moving, and we now have a beautiful daughter named Ava, three dogs, and a turtle.
After being a nanny for 19 years, I decided to take the leap and become a teacher. I am currently working at Bright Horizons, teaching preschoolers. I am enrolled in the ECDA program to become a certified teacher for New York State. Becoming a preschool teacher is different from being a nanny. I have always loved caring for infants, and still do; however, I have found a new love for preschool-aged children, and it has become a passion of mine.
