Education
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education.  I graduated from Griffith University in Queensland, Australia in 1992.  I love learning and am always excited to challenge myself to learn and grow as a teacher.  Most recently, I have been studying early childhood education courses online.

Experience
I have worked at Kids Junction since 2008.  During this time, I have been teaching four year old kindergarten.  I taught elementary education in Australia for over ten years.  I have always enjoyed teaching and have taught people of all ages.  I decided to be a teacher when I was only eight years old.  I love working with young children and instilling in them a life-long passion for learning.

Personal
I was born and raised in Australia. I moved to the United States to marry my amazing husband in 2002.  I enjoy cooking, reading, crocheting, and outdoor photography.  I love arts and crafts and have been known to spend way too much time on Pinterest.  I am the proud mother of a sassy fur child, an Australian Terrier called Cobber.

Experience
I have experience teaching children ages two through five. While in college, I gained experience working for The Boys and Girls Club summer and after school programs, as well as the campus child care facility. After I graduated, I was employed as an Early Childhood teacher at a preschool. I strive to incorporate nature, movement, and sensory experiences into my lessons. I chose to teach because I love the enthusiasm felt in a classroom of young learners. I look forward to guiding, encouraging, nurturing, interacting, and laughing with your child.

Personal
In my spare time, I enjoy biking, working with indoor and outdoor plants, and spending time with my family.
