I received a Bachelor's of Science in Human Development and Family Studies, with an emphasis in Adolescence, from Colorado State University. After graduating, I was a group living counselor for at-risk adolescent girls for six years. A spontaneous move to Jackson Hole, WY resulted in me taking a completely different direction, managing a small sheepskin coat company for the next five years. After returning to Colorado, I knew I needed a change and found myself drawn to working around people again. I was thrilled to find this position here at MAC in May of 2010. I believe this job is the perfect combination of my education and previous work experience.
Personal Info – hobbies, interests, inspirations
Family and friends have always been the rock in my life. I have friends that have been in my life for more than 30 years and as we have experienced the trials and tribulations of life together, our bonds have only continued to grow stronger. With these amazing people, I love traveling, trying new restaurants, cooking dinner, going to concerts, tubing and camping.
Montessori Moment – favorite quotes from students, anecdotes, classroom stories, etc.
I wish I was able to spend more time with the children in the classrooms but I often hear that I have the best job in the school. It is so much fun being at the front desk and watching the children arrive with such enthusiasm each morning. Although I still have a lot to learn about Montessori, I can tell that it is an amazing method of teaching and believe it will be a part of my life forever.
