Katan Tailor, Principal
In the last eleven years of being a qualified educator, I have had the fortune to build upon the most diverse experiences possible. I have had the opportunity to work with children ranging from 10 months to 12 years of age as an Early Childhood Educator. I have dedicated five of the eleven years as a Manager of three Child Development Centres including being the Interim Principal of Core Education and Fine Arts West Vancouver. Apart from the daily rewards of working with children, I have also received three awards for my work in the field.
I consider myself a highly motivated and an enthusiastic person. I am an artist and aspire to inspire the children I work with to be creative. Education is my passion. My initial choice to teach at cefa™ was a choice I made based on the core values cefa™ upholds in regards to education and child development, while still maintaining a child centred and welcoming environment. I thrive on new challenges, which is why taking this position as Principal is an extremely exciting endeavour.
Shortly after moving from Vancouver Island to Vancouver I started with Core Education & Fine Arts, West Vancouver, and transferred to cefa™ Richmond in the summer of 2010. The experience my time at cefa™ has brought has allowed me to make a difference on the forefront of education in a caring nurturing environment. I choose to be a teacher at cefa™ because I want to combine my passions for Early Education, painting and art together as well as making a difference in the lives of children and their families.
