Assistant Preschool Director; Billing Specialist
FRCC, A.A.S. Early Childhood Education
Bixby School 2003-05, 2011-present
I began my career in Early Childhood Education in 1992 after relocating to Colorado from my home state of New York. After earning my degree in Early Childhood Education from Front Range Community College, I ventured overseas to teach English in South Korea and Thailand for three years. While there, I participated in an intensive certification program in Ban Phe, Thailand, earning my TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) credential. Upon returning from Asia, Bixby School welcomed me as Preschool Teacher in 2003. I took some time away to start a family and to teach in Boise and Austin from 2005-2010. By 2011 I was eager to return to the Bixby community in the capacity of parent and teacher. I can’t imagine a better environment to spend my days. I currently hold a Large Center Director certification and Infant Toddler Supervisor certification. My most influential and inspiring educators include Alfie Kohn, Vivian Paley, and Bev Bos.
