I earned my BS in Interdisciplinary Studies & Elementary Education from the University of North Texas in 2006. I have nearly 4 years of experience teaching in the public school system as a first grade teacher. I decided to move into Waldorf education for the freedom to teach beyond the boundaries of standard pedagogy. I want your children to have a safe, loving space to communicate, coexist and collaborate toward a life-long love of learning. I am deeply influenced by a love of the outdoors and have spent both my teaching and parenting years fostering responsibility and respect for the earth and culture. I enjoy hiking and exploring the PNW with my kids & watching Netflix documentaries.
