Brooksfield has a wonderful staff that makes you feel like family. We love and care for one another, as we do our students and community as a whole.
What is a unique experience, talent, or interest you bring to your classroom to help shape the learning experience of your students?
I love cooking and gardening. These two passions are brought together in teaching the children how to take care of the garden, then teaching them how to use what we grow in some of our cooking projects. I also enjoy hiking, playing sports, exercising as well as yoga. I am able to do all of these fun activities with the children! It is important to stay active and be playful with such young, loving and energetic children!
What do you want your students to gain from having known you?
I just want my students to love whole heartedly and laugh often. Embrace every moment because everything is a learning experience.
