About Me

As an energetic, curious and eager teacher, I am passionate about education and being a lifelong and active learner myself. I spend countless hours with my nose in a book or hand on a chess piece. I believe strongly in malleable intelligence, and choose to engage my mind and body as much as possible. I rarely watch television – in fact, I relax by playing outside with my dog, going for a run, reading and exploring the city, my neighborhood and different parks.

Boredom is a concept I have never been able to understand! I have been fortunate enough to travel to a number of countries and 31 states! I love being able to share my experiences and knowledge with children and others around me while knowing I still have so much to learn. With about twelve years of babysitting and teaching experience, I can say that my best memories so far range from writing and performing an elaborate play with the children to teaching the children to play chess to just playing catch. When it comes to childcare, my priorities are providing a safe and structured environment, developing a strong connection with the children and parents alike and creating a culture of learning and growth. I look forward to doing each of these with your family!
