About Me

I have known my entire life that I wanted to contribute to the world through working with children. It is my passion to help mold young minds and guide their curiosity into something that will be a positive influence to society. My last three years spent as a high school English teacher have helped me hone my abilities to help, love, and guide children to be the best people they are capable of being. I truly believe that the reading and studying of literature plays a large role in producing responsible and productive human beings. I will always integrate books and reading into my daily work with your children, with plenty of time left for exploration of art, philosophy, music, and a myriad of other cultural experiences that help a child develop habits of purposeful thought. However, I will always leave plenty of room for unconstrained playing time, for like Piaget, I believe that “play is the work of children.”

I love to cook and bake and am always looking for new ways to integrate healthy and natural ingredients into my recipes. I also believe that a tidy environment is conducive to a tidy mind and promise to always contribute to the cleanliness of your home.
