Hello Fireside community! I am thrilled to have joined your teaching team. I have two children that are students here at Fireside, so I am very familiar with its spectacular learning environment. I feel so lucky to be both a parent and paraeducator at this amazing school.
For 16 years (how is that possible) I have spent my days as a teacher, nanny, or Mom. I can’t imagine not working with children. Being surrounded by young learning minds really does bring me life. I have taught in rural Delaware, downtown Chicago, and in a few tiny mountain towns here in Colorado. My experience is mostly with children birth to age eight. I truly feel like I have learned as much from my students as they have from me and this is why I trust that teaching is a life-long career for me.
Outside of the classroom I am happiest surrounded by my two children,awesome husband, and kitty cat. We love exploring nature, simply playing a board game, or cozying in for a family movie night with popcorn. I really look forward to getting to know many of you.
