I have lived in St. Louis most of my life and have enjoyed being a part of the Casa family since 2008. It is a pleasure to serve the families who have chosen our center. I love interacting with the children and getting them excited to learn by making learning fun. That’s why the Berenstein Bears are my favorite book series: they are so cute and teach good lessons. Growing up, Mrs. Taylor was my favorite teacher because she was encouraging and set an example of a positive outlook, even in difficult times. I do my best to combine these traits with my bachelor’s degree and Montessori training to be the best influence on my students.
I have been married for 34 years and have 3 grown children. We are currently enjoying the new season of being grandparents. In my free time, I enjoy bike riding, reading, traveling and entertaining guests at our home.
