What I love to do: Traveling and going on adventures with my 5-year-old daughter and family. One of our favorite places to visit is the Boston Public Garden and the Citizens Bank Opera House.
Working at the LEAP School has been one of the most meaningful experiences of my life. Every day is filled with joy and laughter. To be able to see each child grow through different daily learning experiences truly fills my heart. I feel that having the opportunity to lead teach each age group throughout the years along with leading the team through Curriculum Director and now Program Director has allowed me to see through the many different lenses in early childhood development.
I have many favorite children’s books that I often read with my daughter but one of my all-time favorites is, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs by Judi Barrett. This book has always been a favorite of mine because the whole family uses their imagination, and they capture your attention with the creative pictures and the story telling within the book. The Sunday morning flying pancake is our favorite part!
My greatest inspiration was my grandmother who had a home daycare throughout my childhood in located in central Maine. Not only did she provide a safe environment for children, but she gave each child the love and attention they needed and deserved. Watching her care for so many children inspired my love for children and families and the work I do today.
