Born in Buffalo, NY on a cold, snowy day (which is most days, and why I moved to the desert), I knew from a very early age that I wanted to teach. I was the girl on the playground in Kindergarten who taught the other kids to tie their shoes. I was the teenager that spent my weekends teaching letters, colors and engaging in arts and crafts with my little sister and all of her Preschool friends. In College, I was the student who genuinely enjoyed going to my Early Childhood Development and Education classes. In Graduate School, studying School Counseling and Education, I was the woman who never met an Internship I didn't like. Being surrounded by children and elbow deep in play-doh makes me happy. Almost 3 years ago, I became the Mommy who took a hiatus from her teaching career to stay home with my new baby boy. Now, I am the Preschool teacher who can be found running around the Fit Kids Clubhouse singing, laughing, teaching, reading, and always having a good time. Because really, you're never too old to start a Clubhouse!
