Hi, my name is Chris. 


I am the Older Toddler Lead Teacher at Zimmer Preschool.


I have worked in education for twenty-four years teaching children from ages 0 - 21. Over half of this experience has been with preschoolers and I have worked closely with children with developmental disabilities for many years as well. Over the years I have benefitted from the continuous staff development and training in early childhood, primary, and secondary education.


I am passionate about helping children discover their unique path of creativity to enable them to experience success in the classroom and in life. I strive to create a warm, friendly, and cheerful classroom while also promoting the development and well-being of the children. 


I am originally from North Carolina and have lived in New Jersey for twenty years. My son recently graduated from college and I could not be prouder of his accomplishments.  Outside of school I enjoy spending time with family and friends and watching professional football and basketball. My favorite teams are the NY Giants and the Golden State Warriors. 


I am extremely excited to guide your children in their education and growth this year.
