I have a degree in elementary education and have been working with kids through teaching, coaching, and childcare for over 20 years. I have extensive experience and expertise working with ESL learners.  Also, I am raising four children of my own.  I also bring the perspective of an all-american college athlete who spent a significant portion of my life surrounded by high level athletes, coaches, and teachers. 

 I am often inspired to create classes that cover subjects I find important in my own parenting journey. I am a lifelong learner and an avid reader. To support my curriculum development I dedicate significant time to reading, listening, and learning about the most current research on child development, teaching, neuroscience, and parenting.
