I discovered my passion for teaching children when I was an America Reads tutor for underprivileged children in Pennsylvania. After a year, I decided to switch my majors from English and Spanish to Early Childhood and Elementary Education to begin a life devoted to young children. I recently received my master's degree in early childhood from Maryville University along with a certification in gifted education. In searching for a school that nurtures the whole child, I was thrilled to find that The Soulard School and its philosophy align with my own. This year will be my third here, and I am honored to return to the community as a kindergarten teacher in the Mums room. I am excited to learn about my students' passions and explore where our interests take us!
