Program Director/Lead Lower Preschool Teacher
B.A. Westfield State University
Where I was Born: Massachusetts
What I love to do!: Running, cooking/baking, reading, photography, and spending time with my family
My love for working with children started when I was 12 years old and being the “neighborhood babysitter.” Even then I realized how powerful it was to connect with children and insight a smile, wonder or laugh. It is still the most important feeling for me to this day as I work with children (as well as my own 2 boys.) Children are my biggest inspiration as an educator and I really just “take their lead” – watching and talking with them to discover their interests, personalities and learning styles. My job is to take those aspects and create an environment that nurtures, supports and provides opportunities in order for preschoolers to feel comfortable and confident to explore, create and grow in all areas of development.
