My favorite children's book/story:

The Paper Princess by Elisa Kleven

Fun facts about me:

I love spending time with family and friends, eating good food, laughing, watching Disney movies, and going to Liberia.

Why did you decide to work with preschoolers?

I love how sweet, curious, and authentic this age is. I also know how much learning, development, trust, and relationship growth is happening and want to provide the best quality experiences to set a strong and competent foundation for the rest of their lives.

What do you love the most about teaching/working with little ones?

Getting to know each child individually, what makes them unique, and learning alongside them everyday.

From your perspective, what makes the Children's Center so special?

Children are wonderful everywhere, but the other teachers and staff here really fill your heart up.
