My name is Ellen Huggins, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to share Tinkergarten with you and our community! I live in Cary, NC with my husband and toddler son. We are also excited to be welcoming a new addition to our family this spring! My professional background in the areas of Elementary Education, Special Education, and Spanish were attained at Elon University after which I served as an elementary school teacher prior to taking time to stay home with our son. For fun, I love to run, cook, and be outside as much as possible!
