I am so excited to be joining the Zimmer team! I am a mommy to two Zimmer students (Indy, age 4, and Theodosia, age 2). I have always felt that there is simply no place better. My children feel loved and respected every day.
I have been teaching mixed-age preschool for three through five year olds for the past five years. Before that I was an assistant teacher in a kindergarten classroom, and a long-term substitute teacher in second grade. I am a strong believer in a Reggio teaching approach and strive to engage children in authentic and joyful learning experiences. I work to build a classroom that celebrates each child's unique voice and encourages the natural curiosity and wonder of young children.
I spent the pandemic working on my M.A. in Literacy Instruction, which I will complete this June. I have received 30 hours of training in phonics-based literacy from the Orton-Gillingham Academy.
I can’t wait to get to know everyone! We are going to have so much fun learning and playing together this year!
