She worked as our Lead Infant Teacher for 19 years before taking a new position in our two’s and three’s class. She enjoys being hands on with the children and getting them to be active and engaged with the curriculum. Don’t be surprised when you see her sliding down the sliding boards or crawling through the tunnel!
