Education and Career Background:

  • Bachelor of Science in Education
  • Early Childhood Montessori Certification from Seton

Approach to Learning and Teaching:

I am a dedicated Montessori teacher who loves nature and being outdoors. I believe in helping each child grow as an individual but also as a community member. Montessori teachers work incredibly hard to make sure each child is supported along their unique journey.
