I am thoroughly enjoying the opportunity to work with your children! My hope is that I can be a part of preparing your little one for their upcoming years in private and public schools. I feel strongly that this preschool atmosphere will give your child a step-up in their years ahead.

Besides working with children, I'm a person who loves to cook, scrapbook, and spend time with my pets. I also like spending time with friends over dinner or at the movies.

I am the Associate Teacher in the Orange Room. I have four years of childcare experience working as a nanny and as a preschool teacher with Head Start and Early Head Start. I also have over five years as a Sunday School Teacher. I have worked with children from newborn to ten years of age. Children are very important to me; I especially believe that their early years shape their lives. I focus on the early stages of life because children can quickly find a love for education and knowledge and take it with them throughout their whole educational career.

On my days off I love spending time with my family, my friend, and my dogs (Cody, 11 and Macchiato, 5). Some of my hobbies are DIY’s projects, hiking, and photography.

I love working with children because they give you unconditional love. Their energy and excitement is contagious and their smiles make my day. It is an honor to be one of the first influences in a child's life.
