I worked as a site-director at PEAK (Program for Elementary Aged Kids) at the Community Child Care Center, as well as a kindergarten and preschool teacher, before coming to CSDC in 2001. I have been involved in the Growing a Green Generation gardening project since 2002 as a volunteer, curriculum liaison and assumed the role of project coordinator in 2007. I have presented locally, regionally and nationally disseminating how teachers use the CSDC Learning Garden to teach curriculum, diversity and social collaboration.
I attended the University of Maine where I received a BS in Child Development/Family Relations in 1994. I also hold a NH K-8 teaching certificate.
My professional interests include photography, the use of puppetry in social storytelling, gardening, and using the natural world to support and extend curriculum.
