Contessa Darden

My name is Contessa Darden. I am a native of Auburn, Alabama. I have worked for 16 years in the field of early childhood education in an array of roles and capacities, including early childhood teacher, child care consultant, and program assistant director. I have and continue to enjoy the work of educating our most early learners. I believe that true learning occurs when children are allowed to inquire, explore, and make discoveries through hands-on experiences. The environment we as educators create for young children supports learning. It is my responsibility to create an environment in which such experiences can occur so that true learning takes shape.
