Tammy Drew began her career in Early Childhood Education in 2003. After living in New Jersey for more than ten years, she returned home to North Carolina for a fresh start. An opportunity in early childhood began as a part-time cook and part-time infant teacher. She quickly learned being around children laughing was her happy place, so she pursued her education in the field. As her knowledge and experience grew, she was rewarded with greater responsibility. She earned her Associate Degree in Early Childhood Education, as well as an Associate Degree in English Literature. In addition, she holds a Level II North Carolina Administrative Credential. For more than twelve years, she has been an administrator, aspiring to be a difference maker wherever she goes. Her experience also includes years of safety training, curriculum and assessment training, as well as discipline and behavior management. She believes the best educators make the biggest impacts when genuine and consistent care create a partnership with parents to benefit the development of the child. She also feels children are positively impacted when everyone participates in their growing knowledge and understanding of our world. Her knowledge and experience of North Carolina regulations, compliance requirements, and sanitation guidelines will allow her to serve Big Blue Marble Academy Park Crossing as a great leader. She is enthusiastic to grow this location and bring the global vision of Big Blue Marble Academy to life, while continuing to provide the best and most trusted early education and care to children and families in this Charlotte community.
