Being around children (and Kindergarteners in specific :) is one of the very best parts of my life. I love the creativity, honesty, friendships, laughter, kindness, singing, dancing, curiosity, hilarity, and hugs … that fill a K classroom. I believe that children should have endless ways and opportunities to express themselves and explore their interests. I hope to create an engaging environment that provokes ideas, problem-solving and thoughtful decisions while also fostering independence, respect, academic growth and creativity.
Prior to teaching Kindergarten I taught PreKindergarten here at EHSS. Before that, I worked with students in Early Education up through high school. I live in Hailey with my husband and our two daughters. I have a Masters in Literacy and Language Arts from Loyola Marymount in Los Angeles, and a B.A. from Indiana University, Bloomington. In my free time, I love to travel, get outdoors, workout, try new foods and spend time with my family and friends.
I feel very fortunate to be a part of this amazing community! GO HUSKIES!
