I’ve been in childcare for 13 years and spent 5 of those in management. I am also certified in CPR and first aid. Preschool is my favorite age to teach but I’m happy in any room! When I’m not at work I enjoy Netflix, the beach, the pool, and being with friends and family! Go Ravens!

I am a mother of 2, a 15 year old and a 10 year old. I have been married for 12 years to my wonderful husband. I was previously a VPK teacher but made the switch to infants when I came to TLE. I love working with both age groups and find it very rewarding to watch them learn and grow!
