I became inspired to be a teacher after working with my mother who is an occupational therapist. I would often help out in the summer program she ran at our local elementary school as a teenager. After that I took classes in high school and later college that helped me study and learn more about the field of education. I love working with children and watching them grow and learn. When they have that “light bulb” moment if they figured something out that was really challenging, or accomplished a hard task, it is extremely rewarding. The Montessori classroom allows children to learn in their most natural environment and go at their own pace. It is a safe and nurturing climate where children can be challenged and respected.

I love spending time with my husband and two children enjoying the outdoors especially the beautiful beaches surrounding Newburyport!
