Tanja Skousen ~ Lead Teacher


I started my journey here at Rasselbande in spring 2015. I had entered the field of early child hood education many years ago when I started my studies at the “Fachhoschule fuer Sozialpadagogik” in Germany. I have since earned my Early Childhood Education Teacher Certificate from the UCLA and completed my Baccalaureate Degree in Human Development- Early Childhood Development and Education.

I moved to the US, specifically Tucson, AZ in 2003. Where I married and started my family. My Son, Husband and many four legged and feathered Friends moved to San Diego in 2010. Here the opportunity arose for me to stay home with our son and to round out my education. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family. I am also passionate about running on the beautiful trails that San Diego and the surrounding area have to offer.

The true joy of my work is the opportunity to guide children through their development and to create an environment in which their stage of development drives their learning.
