After I graduated from CSU, Sacramento in 2006, I embarked on my professional career as a high school history/economics teacher. I quickly found out I was not cut out to teach high school and changed my focus to early childhood education. In 2009, I went back to school to become a preschool teacher and began my early childhood education career as an infant teacher. Since then, I have worked with children ages six weeks to six years. I love working with young children of all ages and watching them reach each developmental milestone. I am so excited to be working here at the Village Preschool because now I get to be a teacher for mixed ages and watch as our students learn from us and each other.
About me personally, I am one of five kids and the rest of my family lives in the Sacramento area in California. My husband and I, along with our daughter, Lucy, moved to Bend in April of 2017 after living in Canada for three years. Prior to that, we lived in Belmont and Novato, California. We love the outdoors, camping, rafting, hiking exploring and going on adventures. I also love to crochet and that’s what you can find me doing in my free time when I’m not baking.
