I have had the privilege and honor of working with our youngest students since 2006, beginning with the pilot of the Blaine County School District preschool program. I am certified in Early Childhood Special Education Birth-3rd Grade and Elementary Education K-8 with a Masters Degree in Early Childhood. My passion is creating an engaging, play based learning environment that provides opportunity for rich dramatic play, open ended art, and hands on exploration of math, literacy, science, and social studies. I design developmentally appropriate early learning experiences that address the unique needs of individual students while nurturing their cognitive, language, physical, and social emotional growth. Every day is an adventure in preschool!
