I love helping children grow and learn as individuals. I like my classroom to be a place where kids feel secure expressing their thoughts. I like to watch the children mature and learn to appreciate their strengths and differences. Watching kids gain confidence in themselves gives me great joy.

I was raised in New York and moved to Washington shortly after graduating college. My family is spread all over the country and I enjoy traveling to spend time with them. I have 2 sisters and 1 brother, 3 nephews and a niece.
We offer a program built on a child’s natural sense of wonder, where your child will discover the joy of learning.
I enjoy traveling, skiing and especially combining the two. I love to spend time with my 2 dogs, Ben and Nelli. I travel yearly with my mother and sister and we try to visit new places and enjoy new experiences.
