I spent 5 years as a preschool teacher in a co-op school designed to educate through exploration and play. I taught 2 years as a Head Start teacher in a low-income, mostly ESL school. Currently I am teaching Kindergarten and loving it!
"Knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand." -Albert Einstein
According to my students, I'm the best teacher ever! Of course, I'm also their first teacher ever, but I'll take what I can get.
I have a Bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education from the University of Maryland.
I attended a Spanish Immersion program for elementary and middle school and an International Baccalaureate school for high school. I strive to incorporate my bilingual and multicultural background into my teaching and my products.
