A Little About Me
I have been in the field of Early Childhood Education going on 23 years now. Starting part-time in a childcare center, I then continued my love working with young child by earning a B.S. in Early Childhood Education and a M. ED. in Early Childhood Special Education. I previously worked as an early childhood special education teacher for 5 years and operated an in-home childcare program for 2 years. This is my fifth school year teaching at Linfield Pre-K.
