I come from a small town north of Quebec City, Canada. I studied to be an Animal Health Technician and worked in that field for three years, before my husband and I moved to Massachusetts in 2009. We started a family after relocating and I decided to stay home with our children for their early years. I loved that period of time so much, and knew I would miss spending time with young children, which is why I decided to become a preschool teacher.
I studied Early childhood education at Middlesex Community College, and earned my Preschool Teacher Certification in 2018.
My three children attended The Community School. This school has always had a big part in my heart, which is why I’m so grateful to have the opportunity to work here. I also love the direction that we are moving in with an emphasis on more nature play-based learning. I love to teach children about everything that surrounds us, from studying a growing seed, to touching a slimy worm, or tasting different kinds of apples. Children are amazed by everything, and that itself brings me so much joy.
Outside of work, I like to spend time with my husband Gary, our three children, Leah, Nelly and Jaycob, and our three guinea pigs. We enjoy camping, hiking and just being home, gardening or working on various projects around the house.
I hope to see The Community School continue thriving, and to be a part of it for years to come!
