Cedars has been my professional home for the past 10 years. Prior to Cedars I taught in AISD, a Montessori school in Austin, in Berkeley and Oakland, California, where I began my teaching career in Special Education. My passion is watching young children become readers and writers and meet challenges through creative problem solving as they encounter them. I love seeing children become excited about learning about people and places of the world.I share my life with my partner, Jay, and our two sons. Cody, who was born in Holland during the two years we lived there, is in his second year of college and Fox is a junior in high school. We love traveling and exploring as a family, including camping, hiking, and cross-country skiing. When our children were much younger we spent a year in Puerto Rico where I learned enough Spanish to get along and enjoy practicing it when possible. We returned with two dogs from Puerto Rico and love to snuggle with them.
