B.S., Child Development and Family Studies, Purdue University

I am a graduate from Purdue University with a Bachelors of Science in Child Development and Family Studies. I have worked with children for fifteen years in many different capacities.

As an educator, I believe that each child has the potential to bring something unique and special to the world. I will help children to develop their potential by believing in them as capable individuals. My classroom will be a caring and safe environment where each child can blossom and grow. I hope to instill a love of learning in my students, as I share my own passion for learning with them. I feel there is a need for compassionate, strong, and dedicated individuals who are excited about working with children. I am such a person and will always strive to be the best educator that I can be.

When I am not teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family. I have a beautiful 9 year old son, and two beautiful stepchildren. We are very busy with sports and cherish the time we are able to spend together. We love to be outside, enjoy family movies, and love a good “family game night."

B.S. with Distinction, Early Childhood Education, Purdue University

After graduating from Purdue I worked with children as a developmental therapist, a kindergarten teacher, and a preschool teacher. I strive to help children develop a lifelong love for learning, and to work with families so that each child can develop to their fullest potential. I am very excited to be back at Purdue University where my education began.

I live in Crawfordsville with my husband and two beautiful children. My favorite things to do right now include watching my children play sports and make music. My other interests include reading, walking, photography, and scrapbooking.

I am delighted to be here at MCDLS as a Child Care Aide Floater! My background and education experiences have always been with infants and young children. They are our future! It is a joy to interact with the MCDLS children on a daily basis. Their curiosity, joy and exuberance are contagious and always remind me of how important it is to nurture and care for them in an open loving manner. I work to help them feel that I am a caring, trustworthy person that wants to share their day with them and be a positive addition to their classroom. I look forward to meeting all of the families and staff at MCDLS as I assist in the classrooms.

In my free time I enjoy being with my husband, children and two adorable granddaughters, sewing, crocheting, crafts, traveling and long walks.
