Where I was born: Newton, Massachusetts
What I love to do!: Recreational walks, attending sporting events, reading, and spending time with family and friends
It has been an honor and privilege to work at the LEAP School for over 30 years! I started working at LEAP immediately after graduating from Gordon College in 1985. Throughout the years I have enjoyed my experiences as a classroom teacher, Curriculum Director and Upper Preschool Director. In September 2018 I look forward to beginning my new role as All School Program Director. I value my interactions and relationships with children, parents and teachers. Throughout my childhood I had many wonderful teachers who inspired me to be a teacher. They were dedicated to their profession and demonstrated a genuine love for learning as well as respect and compassion for others. Some of my favorite children’s books focus on these themes such as Big Al by Andrew Clements Yoshi, Dandelion by Don Freeman, A Bad Case of Stripes by David Shannon and The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn . As an adult, one of my favorite books is Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom.
