I am a mom of two and a former high school special education teacher through Teach for America. I worked for several years in early childhood and elementary age education including a stint with WHYY's Children's Services. I grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia, camping, hiking and exploring nature with my large family. Prior to having kids I enjoyed big grand travel adventures including work experience in Denali Park Alaska and an amazing month long trip to some rural parts of Liberia. Now home with two little ones, my adventures don't take me as far but I find getting outside together opens up some big doors of discovery. I'm excited to engage deeply and meaningfully in the best classroom there is doing the work kids were meant to do: play!
