About Me

I was delighted to join MCHD in 2017. My exposure to the Montessori philosophy came from marrying into a family of educators. I particularly enjoy singing and exploring the outdoors with children. Prior to MCHD, I spent a semester as an Early Childhood afternoon assistant at a local school. A native of Durham, I returned to my hometown after receiving a degree in Classical Studies from UNC Greensboro. Outside of the classroom you'll find me working merrily in my garden, delving into art projects, and hanging out with my husband Paul (a MCHD lower elementary teacher).
