I believe that children have innate wisdom and wonder about the world around them and it is an absolute joy to nurture and guide their exploration. I have worked in the field of early childhood education for fifteen years as a teacher, administrator, and adjunct professor, and right now am enjoying being at home with my five year old son. Before beginning my teaching career, I spent six summers on staff at a residential summer camp. In both camp and school settings you would find me crouched down listening intently to children's questions and hypotheses, then walking together through woods and fields to think, explore, create, and dream. I look forward to meeting you and your children at Tinkergarten!
