Approach to Learning and Teaching:

I believe learning is fostered through building strong relationships with my students and their families. Children are inspired when instruction meets their needs, interests, and personality. Student choice is also an important aspect of my classroom which is provided through the Montessori philosophy. I strive to create a classroom environment where children feel empowered to take charge of their learning. I work with my students to provide a welcoming and inclusive environment.


Spending time with my family, traveling, singing, music/concerts, yoga, surfing, cooking, and writing poetry.
