CAREER

My work has always been about education.

 

I used to be a middle and high school teacher. I loved setting up the classroom as a safe space for students to get to know each other and really have fun learning.

Now, I develop lesson plans, reading guides, and activities for kids, write blogs, and generally try to make learning in and out of the classroom more engaging. I have a bachelors in psychology and a masters in education and am a consultant to several companies, organizations, and universities. I have a flexible schedule and mostly work from home, so I’ll be able to spend a lot of time with my child in the early years and be there when he or she gets home from school, later on.

HAVING FUN

I love to be creative!

 

Making stuff: I knit and crochet and recently learned how to do amigurumimaking little crochet animals. I can’t wait to make a whole collection for my little one. I like to bake, too — funny things like baking-show challenges and fancy things like croissants — and bread! You can see my latest amigurumi and cookie creation in the pics below.

One of my favorite activities of the week is being a reading buddy in a Saturday program at a local elementary school. I've had the same buddy for 3+ years, since he was in kindergarten. He's super fun to read with and it's great to see his interests expand and his reading improve.
