My teaching journey began when I began volunteering in my daughter's Montessori preschool classroom and later worked as a Room Parent. Having found my calling, I decided to go back to school and became a Colorado licensed Early Childhood Preschool Teacher. While finishing school I worked as a Toddler Assistant for several years at The Red Rocks Community College Childcare Center.
In addition to teaching I am also a published children's book illustrator and have taught art at performing arts camps and after school enrichment programs. I enjoy incorporating meaningful art that reinforced the Montessori philosophy into our both our classroom and our school. I love spending time with my family and enjoy laughing, dance, music and being outside in nature. I am entering my fifth year as an Assistant at Compass and am delighted to be part of such an amazing community and school!
