BEA BAYTER - Teacher's Assistant
Bea was born in Colombia, South America but moved to the United States at the age of six. At an early age, she realized being bilingual was an asset that could allow her to help others in unique ways, and when she was in high school, she discovered her passion for working with children. The first part of her career was spent working with students in the school system in Laguna Beach, California. After pausing her career to raise her son for a bit, she reentered the educational system in 2001, working in Collier County. Bea’s professional career has consisted of working as a bilingual coordinator; a special education professional in high school, elementary school and preschool; an ELL program coordinator, and a teacher’s assistant. She joined our Temple Shalom Preschool family in 2017. Bea is grateful to serve the community and continue to work educating and serving the youth, and we are so happy to have her on our team!
