Center Director &
Pre-K Counts Administrator
"My story began in Early Childhood Education with my own daughter attached to my hip in the classroom. She joined me every day for four years until she graduated from our school to Kindergarten. The realization that she had become a strong confident girl, who could make friends and walk into a huge elementary undaunted, amazed me. As she grew, so did my passion to advocate for young children and help families build supportive relationships between each other, the community and school. After twenty years, my experience in Preschool, Special Education Programs, Early Intervention and the Universal PreK Program has made me a well-rounded teacher and administrator. At my previous school in Las Cruces, New Mexico, we had a yearly enrollment of over 70 PreK students and 300 infants, toddlers and preschoolers. More recently in New Jersey, I was a center director with a school similar in size to Green Trees. These experiences prepared me for the many challenges families face in early childhood education."
