After working as a head preschool teacher and student teacher supervisor at Boston University, I joined Cambridge-Ellis as the head teacher in the Yellow Room in 2009. I particularly enjoy working with the young preschoolers, for whom every new experience is enthralling and expands their view of the world. I am trained in the Inquiry Approach to curriculum development and implement it each year, exploring a topic of the children’s interest in a year-long, in-depth study.

During my senior year at Wheelock College, I was placed as a student teacher at Cambridge Ellis. After graduating that May I joined as a full-time teacher. During my second year in the Yellow Room, I completed my master’s degree at Wheelock. My master’s degree has a focus in English language learning, which has helped in the classroom. I enjoy working with preschool age children because it is so interesting to see the inquiry approach in action and how everything connects together.

B.S. Lesley University

I received by Bachelors degree in elementary education and natural sciences at Lesley University. I went on to work in the Cambridge public schools, as well as Lexington and Brookline’s extended day programs before coming to Cambridge Ellis in 2009. I love being part of a community that supports and encourages children as they explore, and develop into problem solvers and members of the community. I live in Arlington with my daughter, and love yoga, kayaking, biking and being active outdoors.
