I have always had a passion to teach. I have my Bachelors of Art degree in Early Childhood Education from Mount Vernon College which is now a part of George Washington University. While I am new to Providence Nursery School, I am not new to the field of education. I have over eleven years of experience that includes teaching reading at the elementary level, first grade, private preschool, and Head Start preschool. Most recently I have been teaching toddlers.
My philosophy of education has always been to let children learn at their own pace. Preschool is a child’s first school experience. It should foster a love of learning and exploration. Children learn best in a fun, no-pressure atmosphere where they are shown kindness and respect. I strive to provide activities and experiences that keep children engaged while addressing all areas of their development.
On the home front, I’ve been married for 12 years to my wonderful husband. In our second year of marriage, I was surprised by the news that I was having twins. I was lucky enough to be able to take a six-year sabbatical from teaching to be a stay-at-home mom to my girls. They are now in upper elementary school. When I am not busy chauffeuring my girls around to their various after-school activities and serving as a Girl Scout leader, I like to knit and read. Our family also includes a finicky cat named Lulu.
