I taught kindergarten and first grade in the inner city of Newark, NJ for several years before I began my family. I was also the Director at a daycare/preschool in Parsippany, NJ. I feel my calling in life has always been to teach. I love children and the way their little minds think. It’s always been my passion. I look forward to work every day and making a difference in children’s lives. Our team at the preschool is wonderful. We work together to have an outstanding reputation and will continue to thrive and help the children grow.
I love to spend time with my family. We enjoy traveling together and sometimes apart too. The beach is my happy place. My dogs are a very big part of my life. I have built some great friendships here and I value each one of them. I feel very fortunate and blessed with what God has put in my path for me.
