Hello and thank you for visiting my website. Here you will find out a little about me, my books and my mission to spread joy while educating and respecting the social and emotional development of children.

First off, I am a preschool teacher serving children with special needs. I knew this was my calling when I met a sweet little girl with downs syndrome playing with playdough back in 1998. Through play she and I practiced skills she would need to acquire language. This fulfilled me to my core. I couldn’t wait to teach more children through play!

Two master’s degree later and dozens of kids, I became an expert in teaching through play! I consider myself extremely lucky to have had a career in teaching. I have met incredible families, amazing teachers and children who have overcome obstacles at a young age.

Currently, I am the Nutritional Science Magnet School Liaison for our public preschool. We worked to a create a school-wide program that focus on making healthy food choices. With the implementation of “Friday Try Days,” we get 350 preschool age children to taste new fruits and vegetables like kale and pomegranates!

We also established gardening opportunities for all eighteen preschool classrooms. Students are now learning about farm-to-table, by growing and eating their own vegetables right at school.

“Why try to explain miracles to your kids when you can just have them plant a garden.”
