Children need the freedom and time to play. Play is not a luxury. Play is a necessity.
–Kay Redfield Jamison
Early childhood education is my passion and I am excited to be teaching at the Child Development Lab, where learning is guided by each child’s curiosity to discover the world around them. The Child Development Lab is an incredible space that provides ample opportunities for children to notice, wonder, explore, and discover. I love teaching in this environment because all of our teachers create developmentally appropriate learning opportunities, and we get to share our passion and dedication with college students who are preparing to work in the field and beyond. I feel so lucky to be a part of SOHE, where children, college students, and teachers are able to engage in the inquiry-based process every day, it is truly a great place to be!
