Date of hire: 2016

My favorite children's book/story:

My favorite children's book is Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss. Like in the story I was the kid who didn't try new foods. I didn't try pineapple until I was an adult. It's now one of my favorite fruits!

Fun facts about me:

I have a sister who also works at Children's Center.

I also work at an elementary school in the afternoons. Preschool is easier!

Why did you decide to work with preschoolers?

I decided to work with preschoolers because I loved the idea of being able to spend my day playing with kids while helping them learn at the same time.

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

What I love most about teaching little ones is the pure happiness they have. They're so happy to come to school everyday. The happiness on their faces when they learn something new is amazing.

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

The Children's Center is so special because it gives you a sense of community. Everyone has gone out of their way to make me feel welcome and truly part of the team.
