Launa O'Gara

Toddler Community

Working in education wasn’t Launa's original plan. She graduated from MCLA with a degree in Literature and a desire to follow Chaucer’s path to Canterbury. Instead she started a bookkeeping business which enabled her to write checks with one hand while holding her infant in the other. Three years later she enrolled her son at MSB and was amazed by the sense of community, the devoted staff and her son’s growth, and just had to be a part ofthis amazing environment. After starting as an assistant in the Toddler room, she realized that she was embarking on a pilgrimage. After several years of training, research and splashing in the Pacific Ocean off of San Diego, Launa earned an AMI Assistants to Infancy certification. Witnessing the growth and change in children is more fulfilling than she could have imagined.
