Early Childhood Education Instructor Brings Expansive Background and Center Director Experience to the Classroom

When Tosca Grimm, Rasmussen College School of Education faculty member, was in her undergrad years, she was studying music and arts and didn’t have solid plans for what she wanted to do once she earned her degree. She became a mom shortly after she graduated, leading her to search for a job in which she could bring her son with her to work. It was in 1994 when she walked into a childcare center down the street from her home, and it would become her entry point into the early childhood education (ECE) field. Grimm began teaching toddlers full time and fell in love with the career from the very beginning. The next step for Grimm, a constant learner, was to become an expert in education, so she began researching how to become an educator and never looked back. Grimm has since earned her Master’s degree in Early Childhood Education and is currently working toward earning her Doctorate of Education.
