I am excited to join the Love of Learning team this year! I am an early childhood educator with 6 years of experience in Brooklyn where I was a co-teacher in a Reggio Emilia inspired school for 2 years and then in a Montessori-based inclusion preschool for 4 years. I’m currently working towards Montessori certification as well as a Masters in Early Childhood Education with a Special Education Extension at Brooklyn College. Growing up in Southern California, I loved spending as much time as possible outside! I still enjoy being in nature, gardening, growing my rock collection, writing songs, kayaking with my husband and playing with my puppy Keiko.
