I am originally from New England and graduated from Boston University with a BA in Elementary Education and Early Childhood Development. While teaching second grade in Seattle, I received my MA in Education. I taught for a number of years in elementary school before deciding to spend some time at home with my three children. I returned to school to receive my Cross-Cultural Language and Academic Development Certification and have been with JCS Mountain Oaks since 2015.
When I am not in the classroom I especially enjoy spending time with my family. You could also find me at various sporting events, reading, hiking, walking, enjoying the beach, and beautiful outdoor weather.
I am excited to share my love for children and education. I believe strongly in a classroom community that provides a learning environment fostering confidence, independence, problem-solving and encourages children to reach their full academic potential while becoming independent life-long learners.
