“St. John’s is where my three daughters attended preschool and it is also where I found a teaching home 10 years ago. I am happy to be back as a part of this community, as it has always felt like family. I love teaching because I love inspiring children. Seeing a connection made or igniting a spark for the love of learning something new is so motivating! Inspiring students to discover, learn, and grow inspires me to do the same. I enjoy spending time going on adventures with my kids whether that be simply through riding a bike or paddling or grander adventures through traveling. I am also passionate about yoga. In my spare time, I enjoy teaching and practicing yoga and movement.”
