I am a mud-loving adventurous mom to Harper, Hayden, and Brooks. Before that I was a teacher, working with ages Preschool- 5th grade; teaching everything from enrichment to special education. I have a B.S. in Family Studies, a Masters in Education and endorsements to teach both elementary and special education. I LOVE exploring and discovering the world through the eyes of children. I live with my family, husband Mark and three children, in Geneva, Illinois. We love raising our children in the Tri-cities. I am very excited to bring Tinkergarten to our area and for the chance to come together with neighbors as we learn and play together!
