I completed my undergraduate work on the University of Whitewater campus in 2010 with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education and minor in Mathematics Education. In 2011, I began teaching in a 4K classroom and quickly realized that Early Childhood Education was where I was meant to teach. During the summer of 2013 I came back to UW-W to complete graduate work to obtain an add on Early Childhood Licensure. I have previously taught 4K for six years in various settings including University Avenue Discovery Center, Madison College and Wisconsin Heights School District. I have been at the Children's Center since 2017! I finished a complete loop with a cohort of children from the infant classroom through the 4K classroom. I am transitioning into a new role at the Children’s Center; Program Enrichment Coordinator! I am currently enrolled in Master of Science in Education in Early Childhood Policy here at the University of Whitewater.  I have an eight-year-old (Harlan Rae) who is loving 2nd grade at Lincoln Elementary in Whitewater, WI. I enjoy all things outdoors especially when it is warm out! In the winter, I enjoy sipping on tea, doing puzzles and spending time in reflective practices such as meditation, journaling and yoga! This year I am excited to rebuild our Student Employee training and onboarding process and continue to enhance our Coaching Practice for our Lead Staff as we work with student employees and pre-service teachers! I am also excited to find a program to implement center wide to support social emotional literacy of the children at the Children's Center.
