I am originally from Western New York and from a family of teachers. I earned my degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education from Canisius College in Buffalo, New York. I had my first teaching job in Baltimore, Maryland, where I taught prekindergarten for four years, while I worked on my Masters at Johns Hopkins in Early Childhood Special Education. During the last four years I have taught preschool in two different districts in Colorado. I have had the pleasure of working at Douglass Elementary School in the beautiful preschool classroom for the last two years. During the weekend, I enjoy spending time outside with my baby, Husband and dog. I love watching Syracuse Basketball and the Buffalo Bills “play” football.
