School of Social and Family Dynamics






Hi I'm Marcia Charles. I have 29 years of experience acting as a Lead Teacher for children ages 2-5 providing planned activities in all learning domains (social/emotional, physical, language and literacy, math, science, and the arts). I promote a reciprocal relationship with parents through daily conversations, parent/teacher conferences providing portfolios and developmental recaps, and parent discussion nights. I mentor and manage CDE 338 students, interns in Master's degree program and college student working staff.

My family consists of my a husband, Dave and three young adult children, Tom, Nick, and Hannah.



Hi! My name is Jennifer Goldfarb. I have been working at the CDL for five years now and I am very excited for this upcoming school year. I completed my undergraduate degree here at ASU with a Bachelors of Science in Family and Human development in 2008. In 2010 I completed my master's degree in Infant-Family Practice. Currently, I am still enrolled in classes here at ASU. I am exploring various areas of early education. When I am not at the CDL I am spending time with my family and friends. My husband name is Nate and we have been married for 2 years. I have a son name Alex (19months), and we also have two Chihuahuas named Bella and Twinky. I look forward to getting to know you and your child as well as sharing many wonderful learning experiences this upcoming school year.



Hi! My name is Liz Gratwick. I am currently a graduate student here at ASU enrolled in the Infant-Family Practice program. I will be working at the CDL as a full-time intern teacher in the Young Preschool classroom. Prior to my continued education, I completed my Bachelor's degree in Family and Human Development. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my friends and family and of course, my loveable black lab Dakoda. I am so excited about this upcoming year and look forward to getting to know all the kids and their families.
