About Me

Hello and welcome to Kindergarten! I have been working in education for 8 years and am very excited to be here at New World Education.  I truly enjoy children and consider myself lucky to work with them every day.

 

I grew up in a large family and am the oldest of five. My mom was a teacher and my brothers and I spent many evenings after school in her classroom.  I always enjoyed planning and decorating with her.  Our family is very close and we are all a great support to each other.  I have two young adult kids.  It is hard to believe how fast that time flew by!  My daughter is now starting college and my son is taking a year off to travel.

 

Students in kindergarten grow so much in one year. They learn many new things and are truly excited at each step along the way.  One of the joys of teaching kindergarten is to keep that excitement alive.  To watch a child really grasp a new concept or reach a new goal is one of the most rewarding moments. I look forward to an amazing year with your little learners.
