I have been with the nursery school program since 2012 and in the early childhood field for nearly three decades. My passion is teaching preschool and prekindergarten. I bring my love of nature into the classroom and take pride in implementing a fun play-based curriculum with a foundation for academics. I strongly believe in hands-on learning and encourage the children to take chances and make choices throughout their day. I live in Sherborn with my husband, two children, and a menagerie of pets. I enjoy spending time with my family outdoors—gardening, exploring, and taking in all the wonders of nature… especially in regards to my bug and animal friends! I hope to soon add chickens, bees, and goats to my menagerie. My favorite food is my Nana’s Swedish apple pie, though I’ll settle for basically any kind.

I worked as an attorney for many years before staying home with my two children. I found my true calling when I began my career in early childhood education. Although I’ve worked with infants and toddlers, I’ve spent most of the last decade working with preschoolers. I love creating a warm and inviting space to foster friendships and encourage play-based learning. My passion is helping children develop their self-help and social skills and build a foundation for future academic learning. I find seeing the growth and development over the school year is both rewarding and inspiring. I grew up and still live in the West Roxbury area. Married with two adult children, I love spending time on the Cape with my family. I enjoy bike rides and nature walks, reading, and doing puzzles.

I have been working with young children since I was 16—babysitting, as a camp counselor, and most recently as an assistant in a preschool classroom at the Tobin Beaudet School.

I am friendly and engaging and I come with a positive attitude, and I love to help young children develop new skills.

I live in West Roxbury with my mom, dad, and younger brother. For fun, I like to read, listen to music, watch TV shows and movies, and hang out with my friends.
