I have worked with K-6 children in afterschool programs, summer day camps, and schools for the last nine years. I am in my fifth year of teaching!
I choose to motivate student learning by building positive relationships with my students everyday. Each student knows through my actions that I value their individual learning and social needs. I use music, movement, call backs, and highly engaging lessons to reach my students and to help them gain skills and strategies for successful life long learning.

I am an enthusiastic educator who believes the best life long learners are cultivated through positive relationships and high expectations for personal excellence.
I am also a proud wife to my husband and the mother of an energetic school-aged boy. Being a wife and a mother has truly been the greatest adventure. I can't imagine life without my two guys by my side.
