I have taught for 15 wonderful years. Most of my time has been spent in Kindergarten, but I have taught Montessori pre-school and had a brief stint in the 4th grade. I love the early years in a child's education journey and fully believe in building a strong foundation that will foster a lifelong love of learning.
I believe in the importance of building a firm foundation for children and instilling a life long live of learning with a balance of structure, nurture, independence, creativity, the strive for excellence and fun.
