Education: M.Ed. University of San Fransisco
Started at The Common School:
I have been at The Common School many times over, as a Nursery-E2 student, an after school teacher in highschool, and a SummerFun teacher in college. I joined The Common School in this season of my life in 2022 as The SummerFun Director and a math intervention teacher.
I love exploring the valley with my kids especially through little field trips to farms, restaurants, orchards and ice cream stands. We also love to immerse ourselves in all kinds of water, oceans, lakes, streams and pools! In my quiet time I love to read and relax.
What brought you to The Common School?
I can never be too far from The Common School and when my son, Jonah joined the Green Nursery in 2021, I was so thrilled at the opportunity to come back to my happy place.
Tell us about a favorite teaching moment at The Common School:
I have loved every second of doing math with my students but perhaps the best moment was when we had our math picnic party at the end of the year and we played their favorite math games in the spring sunlight of the courtyard.
What do you like best about The Common School?
I love the way The Common School dedicates itself to taking the time and effort to know each child and family individually. From the warm greetings in the morning to the deeply thoughtful progress reports, every interaction is full of compassion, caring and knowledge of what makes each child truly themselves. It is the most authentic version of “child-centered” education I have ever experienced and such a gift to be a part of.
