I have experience working in school settings for about 9 years. During that time I have worked as a paraeducator for many grade levels but mostly early learning and elementary grade levels in general education and special education. I most recently worked as a preschool teacher for an early learning center. I have my initial certificate in early childhood education and am currently working on my bachelors for teaching K-5.

I joined CIS because I enjoy working with children. I love when I am able to support children in their education and personal development. So when I heard of this opportunity I thought it would be a great opportunity to support children and their families as a school and on an individual basis.

Aside from work, I have a family of my own that includes my husband and two children, 10 and 5. My husband comes from a big family so we enjoy getting together and taking trips to the beach and camping, fishing, hiking outdoors. When I am not working or spending time with my family, I also enjoy working out at the gym. It is my form of self care, mental health aid, and of course to stay healthy!
