I’m a full time teacher at Old Adobe School.  I’ve been working here since January of 2014 in the toddler room with the twos and threes and I love every minute of it.  I really love working at Old Adobe School for so many reasons, the main one being that I agree so much with the philosophy of the school. I believe that a preschool curriculum should be built primarily around the interests of the children in the class. A teacher’s job in the classroom is to gently guide and scaffold children as opposed to directing and dictating their actions. I love to watch all the children here explore and discover what they find interesting in their own way.  I got my first babysitting job at twelve years old, and since then I have never looked back.  Most jobs that I’ve had in my life have been child related. Before I joined Old Adobe School I worked part time at Tree House Hollow, a small preschool in Sebastopol, and as a part time nanny.  I have lived in Sonoma County most of my life and I love it here. I went to Santa Rosa High School and then moved on to Santa Rosa Junior College where I received Assistant and Lead Teacher certificates in early childhood education (ECE).  I am currently continuing my education in ECE in hopes of earning a Site Supervisor permit. I’m CPR certified for infants, children, and adults and have all my first aid training as well.  In my spare time I enjoy going to see live music, cheering on the Giants and the Warriors, and spending as much time with my friends and family as I can.
