Before First Circle, I worked for over 12 years in the education field, including work as a developmental specialist, providing weekly in-home services for infants and toddlers with developmental delays. I earned my BA in literature from UMass Lowell and my master’s in education from Lesley University. I love working with children because they are naturally curious and always willing to learn something new every day. They never tire and spark life! I am a mother of four—soon to be five (expecting in September of 2023)! I love being a teacher because education is something that holds high value in my life. When I’m not working, I love to travel, write, read, eat, and live life to the fullest. I was born in California, but moved to Massachusetts when I was seven years old.
