I am a mom of a curious and adventurous 8 year old boy. We love exploring our backyard--Central Park--and getting messy in the dirt and rocks. I love children of all ages and am happiest when we have a loud house full of friends and family. I enjoy being silly with the kids, planning activities and theme parties for them and encouraging exploration and tinkering whenever possible! I'm also obtaining my Master's in Early and Special Education, as well as my Montessori Certification and am a student teacher in a Montessori preschool. I am thrilled to be part of the Tinkergarten family.
