Q: How would you describe yourself in 3 words?

Q: What drew you to teaching at SCCS?

A: I love working with young learners and their families. At SCCS, I knew that I would have the opportunity to be part of a supportive and caring community!

Q: What do you enjoy most about teaching Preschool?

A: I enjoy the adventure of each day in Pre-K! No day is the same. Each new day offers something new and unexpected. I enjoy the creativity, the mess, and the flexibility of this age group. I especially love building a welcoming space for the whole family to begin their formal learning experience.

Q: If you could visit any place in the world, where would it be?

A: I would really like to go to Chile so that my family can visit our exchange student and her family there.

Q: What is your favorite food?

Q: What is your favorite children’s book?

A: How in the world could you pick just one?! Children’s picture books are my favorite. The Big Red Umbrella is one of my new favorite picture books about sharing and including. Mrs. Riley gifted it to me at the end of our first year working together. The book, There are Rocks in my Socks Said the Fox to The Ox, is a childhood favorite picture book of mine!
