I will be the educator in the Alder Room at Fremont this school year. I have a B.S. in Elementary Education and Special Education from Northern Arizona University and began working in the field of Early Childhood Education in Boston in 2002. I joined the Hilltop teaching staff in 2006 and became the Spanish teacher for the program in 2013. Among other things, I enjoy sharing with children the art of building with Kapla Blocks, exploring language, facilitating art experiences using a variety of media, and bringing nature into the classroom. It’s important to me that children in my classroom feel respected for who they are, that they can take risks and pursue challenges in a safe and supportive environment, and that we build a sense of community care together in our classroom. I look forward to partnering with your family to support your child’s learning and growth.
