My favorite children's book/story:

Love You Forever by Robert Munch. I still cry every time I read it.

Fun facts about me:

• I worked as a speech therapist for many years.
• I love to travel, but my kids all beat me to the Taj Mahal.

Why did you decide to work with preschoolers?

Preschoolers are the best. Their energy and joy is contagious.

What do you love the most about teaching/working with little ones?

I love the way they make me laugh.

From your perspective, what makes the Children's Center so special?

The Children's Center is truly a special place. Everyone here has such passion and love for what they do and it shows in every way. I feel so lucky to be here!
