Sophia was born in Ukraine Crema, and was adopted when she was 14 years old. She is a big sister to 5 year old Lillian (a TLS Alumni), and is currently enrolled at Alamance Community College working on her Early Childhood Education degree. Sophia is a mom to 5 goats, 33 chickens, 3 dogs and 5 cats. She enjoys listening to music, going on walks and playing with her animals. She has had a passion for working with kids since she was a young girl herself, helping out with the little ones at the orphanage. Keeping kids safe and happy brought her much joy, and she knew that being a teacher was her dream. When she found out about TLS she realized that this school will fit well with her beliefs and personality. She has been enjoying working with children, and is very excited to expand her knowledge on Early Childhood Education.
