Summary

Dedicated and enthusiastic preschool teacher with 15 years experience creating fun and interactive learning experiences. Highly observant and student-focused with expertise in promoting positive social, language, cognitive, emotional, and physical development. Maintains safe, loving environment encouraging children to explore and learn.

My mission is to help each child develop a love of learning, a curiosity to explore, and a sense of autonomy where they gain self-confidence and empathy. My focus is on the “whole child,” including each child’s social, language, cognitive, emotional, and physical development. I believe children learn through play and hands-on experiences and that the process is more important than the product.
