In high school, I attended a career and technical education program focused on child development and child care. After graduation, I worked as an after school teacher at Our Lady's Academy, during which I worked with a range of students from pre-k to eighth grade. I have always loved working with, teaching, and learning from children. I always knew that I wanted a career that involved children, and the pandemic pushed me to make a career change and follow my passion. I am excited to work at First Circle, and I'm looking forward to what the children will teach me just as much as what I will teach them. I love to spend time with my family, be outside, and go on adventures with friends. I try to do new things outside my comfort zone whenever I get the chance. I can't leave out my pandemic puppy, Shadow!
