I love learning and teaching all ages. I have taught in tradional and Montessori classrooms, been a volunteer art teacher in my kids' elementary classrooms, and have been teaching in Children's ministry in our church as a Sunday School teacher and VBS Leader for many years. I am a self-taught home cook and have an interest in Nutrition and Health related topics. I am passionate about Health in all its forms (physical, relationship, emotional, financial, spiritual) because I believe it is key to a fulfilling life.  

Professional Experience: I have been a preschool teacher in both traditional and Montessori classrooms.  I have worked in aftercare programs with children from preschool through 2nd grade.
