Do less. Observe more. Enjoy most.

As a new mother (Tate, 2 years; Riley, 6 months) and an early childhood educator, I have been able to experience a wonderful connection with what is the most important age of a person’s life: birth – 3 years old. In addition to knowing that this is the most crucial time for a child’s development, this age fascinates me with the amount of growth that happens and by the special relationship that occurs between a child and the people that child loves. I began teaching at the Child Development Lab in 2012 in the toddler classroom. In August of 2017 I began teaching in the Infant/Toddler classroom.
