I am the lead teacher in Room 2 at ABC Child Care Village and the Department Leader for the Nursery and Toddlers. I am very fortunate to work with some pretty incredible ladies… and together we make a great team!!!
I have worked at ABC for over 19 years now. I have worked with the babies, toddlers and 2’s and I have to say the babies are definitely my passion! I love learning and growing and teaching my babies! It is such a joy to come to work every day. It is my hope to be partners with you in the growth and development of your child. I hope to build a good and strong relationship with each and every one of you.
I am currently the 2’s Department Head and a lead teacher in Room 7. I have been at ABC for over five years and I absolutely love it here. The twos are my favorite age group because I can see the sense of wonder and discovery they bring to school every day. It is my joy to be able to help them develop a keen sense of curiosity and independence and I look forward to exploring with them for years to come.

I have been at ABC for over 4 years now. I currently work in the threes where I help your little ones develop a sense of self and independence. I first worked with kids as an ROP student in child care my senior year of high school. I also volunteered at ABC for one semester and that is when I found that my passion was to work with children! I love coming to work every day because I know there will be new and exciting things to show and teach my kids. I am passionate about my threes, and I can’t wait to share that passion with you.
I have been working with children for over 20 years, and I am blessed to say that a majority of that time has been at ABC Village. I am honored to be part of team four, and set the bar for education and learning as our pre-k kids get ready for kindergarten. I believe in balancing academics and play, while reaching individual kids who might have more challenges then others. With my fours it’s a perfect fit, and they teach me new things every day!
I have been with ABC since 2004. I started at our Solana location in the Pre-K department as a lead teacher and soon after I became the Department Head for the team. In June of 2009 I was promoted to Assistant Director. In the fall of 2015, I made the decision to return to teaching because that’s where my heart is. Now I am a kindergarten teacher at ABC Village, where I teach the love of learning to my students, knowing that wherever they go from here, they will be successful not only academically, but socially and emotionally as well.
