Glynnis Maki

Head Teacher, Toddler Teacher, Student Employee Supervisor

Started at Bethel in: 1995

Before coming to the Bethel University Child Development Center, I worked at the Cradler Club with the older toddlers. I have been working with toddlers since I graduated from Bethel in 1990. During my time teaching, I have read and enjoyed many children’s books. A favorite of mine is Time for Bed by Mem Fox.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time outside and with my family. I enjoy hiking, biking, camping, looking for beach glass and road trips. I especially like a good campfire.

I chose Early Childhood Education as a career because I enjoy working with children and their families. At Bethel, I am also able to work with the college students too. This is a career where I am constantly learning and teaching. I am also able to see a child’s excitement as they have experiences for the first time.
