I moved to Lexington in 2015 from Chicago, Illinois and began Working at LFP last year as the Afternoon Assistant in our Waldorf-inspired program. I am thrilled to be coming back for my second year as Lead Teacher in the Primary 2 class.
I earned my BFA in Illustration at the Savannah College of Art and Design and continued my education in Early Montessori Education.
I have a colorful background in art including public mosaic murals, art classes for children, costume design, and theater. I also run my own small art business, Sweet Burn, where I design and create original wood-burned artwork.
As a mother of two, I naturally gravitate to children and offer continuous love and support. I work with each individual and their specific needs. I encourage respect for all living things and appreciation for the world around us. I love to be silly, get messy, and help everyone feel comfortable to explore their interests.
Outside of teaching, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, exploring Kentucky, gardening, hiking, making art, listening to music and reading.
I am extremely grateful to be working with such supportive families and staff members and feel honored to be apart of this beautiful LFP community.
