Welcome to Pre-Kindergarten!

    My priority is to help build a thoughtful and caring learning community that gives children permission to take academic risks, be critical friends, and find joy in the learning process. That includes knowing each child, where they are, and where they could be by when. It includes seeing the value in the leader, the introvert, and the wiggle worm. And it includes feeding their innate drive and curiosity. Teaching is my passion, and children are my love. I am beyond thrilled to be living in Hailey with my husband, three boys, and two pups.
