The greatest joys in my life have all involved being part of the lives of children. Watching my children grow, teaching English to middle school students, and currently teaching preschoolers has given me the opportunity to learn invaluable life lessons. I love the curiosity and imagination of all children. It is my wish as a Tinkergarten leader to continue to foster children's natural love of play and learning. I enjoy being with people and out in nature, so there's nothing better than playing together in an outdoor classroom! As Albert Einstein said, "Play is the highest form of research." I look forward to the opportunity to learn through discovery with you and your children.
