I am beginning my Tinkergarten journey with 18 years of experience in elementary education. I was a classroom teacher as well as a literacy specialist/coach and professional development presenter for the school district. Currently, I am a stay at home mom with two adventurous little boys (ages 5 and 2) who love to learn and explore. We have spent the last several months visiting all of Charlotte's greenways and parks. We can't wait to meet you!
