My favorite children's book/story:

What Matters Most by Emma Dodd

Fun facts about me:

I have visited all 50 states. I'm an ultra-early riser (if you want peace and quiet I highly recommend the 4AM hour) and almost never miss a sunrise. I will forever be on the search for the very best slice of pizza.

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

How they are open books — they tell you everything, for better or worse, just how it is. I am always amazed at how sponge-like they are in terms of knowledge. They can pull up things you talked about six months ago, long after you have forgotten them.

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

The commitment of the staff in enriching the lives of the children through open play, art, and movement. All of the children are loved equally but appreciated for their uniqueness.
