I began working at Cullowhee Kids Preschool in 2007 and taught in the 2 year old class for 12 years and in the fall of 2020, I moved up to the 3-4 year old classroom. I received a BSW from Western Carolina University. I have three boys of my own that attended Cullowhee Kids preschool. My family and I live in Sylva and we love to camp, mountain bike, fish and hang out with our dogs Eddie and Piper and cat Gilly.
My philosophy with teaching and learning is that each child is unique and everyone will learn and develop in a different way. My classroom focuses on play-based learning and hands-on experiences to maximize success. Your child will be exposed to letters, numbers, music, etc., but most importantly grow socially and emotionally.
Preschool is your child’s first school experience, and I would love to make it a happy one! Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or concerns.
