I have worked at MAC since summer 2013. I grew up in North Carolina and earned a Bachelor's degree in English and American Studies from Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota. After discovering a love for preschool-aged children and the Montessori philosophy, I completed my Montessori training at Montessori Education Center of the Rockies. This is my first year as a lead teacher and my fifth year working in a Montessori classroom.
I love teaching at MAC because I can't think of anything more beautiful or important than building a community of 3 to 6 year olds where they are empowered to learn, create, make choices, solve problems, and take care of themselves and each other.
I also enjoy cooking delicious meals, playing the ukulele and singing, and reading really good novels.
