Kindergarten

Professional Biography
I teach kindergarten at Community Christian School. I started teaching at CCS in 2005, and I love being part of such a wonderful family. I have taught kindergarten, first, second, third, and fourth grade. Before starting at CCS, I worked in the public school system as a teacher’s aide and as a substitute teacher.

Personal Biography
I grew up in Connecticut, but I moved to Chester, Massachusetts, in 1999, where I live with my husband.  I have two grown children who have both attended Community Christian School. In my downtime, I enjoy gardening and backyard bonfires with my family, our horse, and donkey. (Yes!  I said “donkey.”)

Educational Philosophy
After teaching in a public school setting and now in a Christian school, I feel so blessed to be with such Godly people. Yes, I am a teacher, but I also feel my other roles are just as important. I am also a friend and a mentor to my students. Partnering with parents to educate their children is such a blessing and such an honor for me as a teacher. I look forward to many more years teaching with this wonderful school family.
