I started at Suburban as a co-oping parent in 2009 when my son Aaron (born 2006) was a Yellowbird, and I haven’t left! I co-oped for three years, was a sibling sitter, an aide in the classroom and a substitute teacher in all three classes. When the opportunity became available to be a teacher at Suburban, I jumped at the chance. Suburban is not only a school, it’s a community. You’re not just a face in the classroom or the hallways – you’re a part of a family. SNS focuses on the entire child and their experiences – it’s so exciting to see their faces light up when they figure out something new and share it with their teacher and their friends.
My classroom is a place of learning, exploring, experiencing, growing and fun! We follow a schedule – my Bluebirds thrive with a routine – that involves play, art projects, story and circle time, singing, sharing snack and exploring the outdoors. I love to see how each Bluebird approaches the day and what they are able to share with their classmates. The change (both physically and emotionally) from the first day of school to the last is extraordinary and I’m so happy that I’m able to share this experience with them and their families.
I look forward to every day I get to spend with my Bluebirds and all the great hugs I receive and give throughout the year!
