IMG_1567The fall of 2020 is my thirteenth year working at Cullowhee Kids Preschool.  I taught in the 2 year old class for 12 years and the fall of 2020, I am moving up to the 3-4 year old class room.  I received a BSW from Western Carolina University. I have three boys of my own that attended the preschool. My family and I live in the Barkers Creek Community. We love to camp, mountain bike, fish and hang out with our dog, Abraham.

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.
