M.Ed. Lesley University
I began teaching at CES in 2007. One of the things I love most about teaching young children is applying principles of child development in the classroom and watching children grow and learn. I am fascinated by the challenge of creating a classroom community and supporting the social emotional growth of children while stretching their cognitive experiences. As a former business journalist and marketing professional, I also love writing about child development and early childhood curriculum.

I am originally from Jamaica. As a child, I always wanted to be in the military but after a summer of helping a friend who owned a preschool, I found my true calling. I became a preschool teacher in Jamaica in 1997 before moving to the US before the birth of my first daughter. I joined the teaching team at Cambridge-Ellis in 1999. I love being a preschool teacher and I truly think it’s the best job in the world. I have been married for 17 years and I have 3 daughters who have all gone to Cambridge-Ellis.
B.A. Middlebury College
After graduating from college with a degree in Latin American Studies/Spanish, I spent two years working as an AmeriCorps volunteer in the Addison County Child Care Services Office. Since then, I have happily taught in toddler and preschool classrooms in schools in Vermont, Colorado, and Massachusetts. I began teaching at CES in 2012 and I feel very fortunate to be working with the children and families we serve in such a diverse community. In my spare time, I love to spend time outside, read, and go on adventures both near and far.
