Working with children has always been a passion of mine. My goal is to give each student experiences and tools to become lifelong learners both inside and outside the classroom. Working with children to discover their personal learning styles and strengths is motivating and rewarding. Another goal is creating a community for the children that will allow them to develop age-appropriate social skills, friendships and a sense of pride in their community. Play will be the primary teaching method for the children.
I was a proud part of Cathy's Nursery School for 8 years before they closed. I started as a Teacher and then took the role of Head Teacher for the last few years. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Cathy's and am excited to share my enthusiasm for teaching at MCNS. Before working at Cathy's, I worked as a Special Education Teacher in MA. I had the privilege to teach children from Pre-K to grade 4. These children taught me the importance of finding individual strengths and learning styles.
I live in Glastonbury with my husband Brendan, our 4 children (Patrick, Mary, Kate and Deirdre) and dog Greta. My family is actively involved in both hockey and lacrosse, keeping an active lifestyle is also especially important to me.

I loved working as an assistant teacher at Cathy's Nursery School for five years, before it closed. Currently, I am a math tutor at Hopewell Elementary in Glastonbury. I genuinely love being a "difference maker" for young children, helping each one become confident and responsible as they begin their school journey. While I have a Bachelor's degree in Marketing, I have returned to school to complete my Associate's degree in Early Childhood Education. I live in Glastonbury with my husband, son, daughter, one dog and two cats, and I look forward to becoming a part of the Marlborough community.
