"It takes a big heart to help shape little minds" I am originally from Long Island, NY and moved to Texas in July of 2013. I have my Bachelors Degree in Psychology and was working towards a Masters in Family Therapy when I had a change of heart and found my true passion. After being a stay at home mom to my four kids I started working at a preschool and have never looked back. My love with working with children brought me to TLE in 2019 and now I can truly say I have found my true passion. I hold my Lead Teacher Certification and I am in the process of receiving my CDA specializing in Infants & Toddlers. I love working with my babies because EVERY minute we spend together is an opportunity for learning!

Hello! I'm originally from Arkansas! I hold my Associates degree in Criminal Justice & have six plus years working in childcare. When I'm not with my kids at work, I spend my free time being the best mother i can be to my twelve year old son! My classroom goal is to make sure that no child is left behind.
