This is my 16th year as an early childhood teacher and 6th year teaching kindergarten at TMS. I started teaching Kindergarten in my home state of North Carolina, then moved to Oregon and taught 1st grade. After a short time out of the classroom, I started teaching kindergarten at The Museum School and feel so fortunate to be a part of the TMS community.
I view learning as a social, active process that is unique to each child. I work hard to create a positive learning environment where children feel safe and welcome, where they can take ownership of their own learning, where they feel free to make mistakes and take on new challenges and learn to respect themselves and others.
Outside of the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two boys, and with our friends and family. I love being outdoors, trail running, reading good books, and trying new recipes.
