I have been surrounded by children my entire life, with many younger cousins visiting our house in Seattle throughout my childhood. My earliest teachers were my Mother and Grandmother, who believed every child was a gift that should be nutured and cherished.
I have taught preschool these past few years, first at a private, in-home setting and then at The Cottage School as part of Gatewood Elementary.
I grew up in the Seward Park Neighborhood, as a second generation Seattlite surrounded by Aunts, Uncles and cousins. I currently live in West Seattle with my two elementary age daughters.
