One of the most important decisions you can make for your child is their early childhood education. I am honored to lead the children at Everett Cooperative Preschool through their early and formative school years. My approach to teaching is much like how I live my life. I teach through kindness, compassion, and patience. I believe that we are all lifelong learners, and together, in partnership with family, I create a safe, nurturing, and loving school environment. I teach children through a play-based curriculum and believe that when we work together, we will “move mountains” (-Dr. Seuss). Choosing a cooperative education allows families to help evolve our school and make it a unique family environment, which is why my family chose cooperative for our children. I have over 9 years of experience in cooperative preschool, 4 of which I have been lead teaching. I am looking forward to meeting your family and the upcoming school year.
