After receiving my Bachelor of the Arts degree in Education, along with an Early Childhood Endorsement from Wayne State University, I began my teaching career in southeast Michigan. I have taught mainly in early elementary classrooms including preschool, kindergarten, first grade, and second grade over the past 13 years. I have worked with a diverse population of students, including students that are considered at-risk, students that are learning English as a second language, gifted students, and students with special needs. Most recently in 2013, I rediscovered my passion for teaching the youngest of learners and joined the preschool teaching team at Elona P. Cooley Early Childhood Development Center which is where my true passion resides!
On a more personal side, after spending my entire life in St. Clair Shores, Michigan I decided to try moving across the country to Arizona in 2010! It has been an amazing couple of years! I have discovered new enjoyments including climbing mountains, exploring caverns, and swimming in natural creeks. I love to travel and was able to cross off visiting the Grand Canyon and Sedona from my “Bucket List.” I can't wait for my next adventure in Arizona.
I look forward to a wonderful preschool year with your child!
