* Meet Our Teacher

I have a passion for teaching Kindergarten - "The little people at the fresh end of education!"

I have also taught 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade. Working with children is one of the most rewarding things I do. I enjoy watching them grow right before my eyes. I have been a classroom Early Childhood Educator for 15 years. Prior to my work in the classroom I worked with children as a Reading Tutor for 5 years. Prior to my tutoring experience, I worked in Child Care for 5 years. My total years in Early Childhood is 25+ ! I am proud to have patience as one of my biggest charactor qualities. I am also a quick and spontaneous thinker, often coming up with our best learning experiences on the spur of the moment... it always helps to teach to the needs of the students at the time they need you. I have created many of my own teaching materials. I have shared these learning materials with many of my peers over the years. I have instructed on many different levels in many different venues. Many of my teaching aides are available on CD or Download. You can contact me at if you are interested in hearing more about these materials.

To the parents of the little ones I teach... I thank you for trusting me to be a part of your team as we work together to bring knowledge and social responsibility to the little people of the world.
