I have taught Pre-k for almost 15 years! Most of my career has been lovingly dedicated to 2-4 year olds. I'm also a mom to three children- ages 8, 5 and 4.
I believe and encourage, first and foremost, creating a safe, nuturing classroom where the kids understand and are EXCITED about being part of our little community. I love having dramatic play, sensory play and free art expression as integral parts of our room as well as incorporating music into everyday. I love hands-on, creative, messy and conversation building activities, especially anything that is science related. I plan and provide activities as well as opportunities for group/individual discussions, incorporating open-ended questions, team work and building on previous lessons/ideas. I do not believe that learning is limited to only the classroom!

Teaching Pre-k for over 15 years, obtained and have kept current my CDA, considered "highly qualified" through Work-keys exam and still learning every single day.
I am wife to the greatest, a mom of three, a teacher of many and a source of warmth to our cold-natured mutt, Rigby. I am a lover of Harry Potter, bad puns, (bands) Brand New/Coheed & Cambria, flip-flops, wasting time, doodling, searching Etsy stores, that feeling of drawing with a brand new sharpie, divulging into murder/mystery/forensics shows/movies/books, daydreaming and strawberry-watermelon sparkling ice. I'm also a big fan of sleep but we don't see enough of each other.
