I love the wonder, promise, and joy of young children - the way they explore and engage the world around them. Early childhood education is the work of shaping and guiding the future of our families, communities, and world, and it is truly an honor to play a role in it.

I have been working with children for 15 years, and my absolute favorite thing is to see my students make connections with what we’re learning about and everyday life. They might remember a tidbit about a story or even a letter we explored, and then when something reminds them, there’s a, ‘Hey! Like we talked about this morning!’ moment. It’s an exciting way to see their brains at work. But most of all, they make me laugh, remind me to not take life too seriously, and together we help each other become kind and empathetic humans!

Even from a young age I've always enjoyed working with kids! If I'm having a hard day, I can always count on one of my students to say or do something that will make me smile! Being able to watch children grow in the classroom every year is incredibly rewarding and I love creating relationships with our families!

I love seeing and hearing the imagination in all of our students! Working with children has brought me joy and laughter! I have been working with children for about 4 years now. Their eagerness to learn, excitement to explore, and their funny story telling makes it so much fun to be their teacher!

I love working with children because they are the most raw form of humanity. I think it’s so important to be reminded on a daily basis of who we truly are before the world tells us who to be. When children are this young, they are unashamed of their personalities, they take risks, and they find joy in the simplicity of everyday things without needing to know everything about the next one. I believe as adults we can foster those wonderful traits and support children to grow healthfully into themselves.
