I started my career at the UW-Whitewater Children’s Center my freshman year at Whitewater for undergrad. I worked four years as a teaching assistant and as an associate. I graduated from Whitewater with a degree in Elementary Education, and realized that I fell in love with the Early Childhood-age students. I got my Early Childhood Add-on licensure and got hired as a Lead Teacher at the Children’s Center in January of 2020. I love that I get to loop with my class of students and get to build such a strong bond with all of my students and their families. When I’m not at work I enjoy working out, traveling to new places, hiking/doing anything outside, plants, and listening to music or podcasts. I am working towards getting my Master of Science in Education in Early Childhood Policy here at the University of Whitewater, in hopes of being a strong advocate for Early Childhood, myself, and all my students. This year, I've gotten 5 new students. My professional goal is to create a classroom community that is welcoming to all of my students and a place where all my students feel safe, comfortable, and happy.
