My degree is in Early Childhood Education from the University of Cincinnati. I took a position right out of college as a Preschool Teacher and then went on to be a Director of a child care program. I realized my heart was in non-profit and went to work for the local Child Care Resource and Referral Agency where I spent over 10 years. I spent most of that time in the Professional Development department, writing and presenting training for early childhood professionals and supervising the team. My last year there, I did community relations and advocacy work, focusing on issues that affect young children and their families.
I have been in the industry for almost 20 years. I have taught children for 5 years and career tech for 3 years.
I love teaching because of how much I learn from students every day. I also love their excitement about being teachers themselves, which is quite rejuvenating.
The best part of my classroom is the preschool- where I can observe ECE students planning and implementing high quality learning experiences with children.
