Kindergarten Teacher

This is my 18th year as an early childhood teacher and 8th year at The Museum School.  I am originally from North Carolina and taught Kindergarten there at the beginning of my teaching career.  I then moved to Oregon where I taught first grade.  My husband and I then moved to Arizona where I continued my graduate studies.

I view learning as a social, active process that is unique to each child.  I strive to create a positive learning environment where children feel safe and welcomed and learn to celebrate and respect themselves and others. I want our classroom to be a place where they can take ownership of their own learning, where they feel free to make mistakes and take on new challenges.

Outside of the classroom, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two boys, and with our friends and family.  I love being outdoors, running, reading good books, trying new recipes, and tackling DIY home projects.
