What is one of your favorite things about teaching young children?

I teach for all of the “little” reasons…hugs, excitement, reading books, imagination, curiosity, listening to four year old stories, aha moments, smiles, laughter and many more. I love inspiring a lifelong love of learning and knowing I am making a difference in the lives of children.

How has the Excellence Academy changed you, your classroom environment, your knowledge of early childhood development and your teaching practices and strategies?

The Excellence Academy has changed my way of thinking from a teacher directed approach to a child led approach. It has helped me to understand the importance of social and emotional development. The children are learning to express their emotions and problem solve. Also my classroom is continuing to change from a commercial product, plastic and primary color filled room to a more homelike setting with natural elements.

What is your favorite way to spend a weekend?

On the weekends, I love spending time with my husband Chris and our 6 year old daughter Annabelle.

What would be impossible for you to give up?

It would be impossible for me to give up reading. I love to read!!!

How do you want to be remembered?

I would like to be remembered as a loving wife, mother, friend, sister, daughter and teacher.
