I started babysitting at the age of 12. After receiving my Master’s Degree from Teacher’s College, Columbia University, I volunteered weekly at a Head Start early childhood program teaching the children Circle Time combined with yoga. I also started three local home programs for nursery children, where children could walk to school in Brooklyn's neighborhoods of Prospect Park and Lefferts Garden. I worked in the Waldorf education school setting for seven years teaching Parent-Child classes to Kindergarten and after school, which included Grades 1-5.
As a trained early childhood teacher, I love baking, crafting, and being in nature with children. I am certified in CPR, the healing arts, yoga, and medicinal aromatherapy. After working for about 10 years in a school setting, I believe play and self-initiated movement are natural remedies for childhood.
