Meet the Teacher
Welcome to Kindergarten!
I am thrilled to be at Anderson Creek Primary this year. The energy, support and level of commitment here is contagious. I have a passion for teaching and helping every child reach their full potential. My son, Miles is 5 and will be starting Kindergarten this year as well! My son was born with Fragile X Syndrome and I have worked his whole life helping him overcome challenges and seeing him accomplish amazing things. I believe that all children can learn. I look forward to getting to know you and your child and working together to make this an incredible year!

In my spare time, I enjoy photography. I started a small photography company, Miles of Smiles, to photograph individuals with disabilities. I also enjoy advocacy work. I travel to Raleigh and Washington with the RARE Disease Legislative Advocacy group and the National Fragile X Foundation. I love visiting my family in California and taking my son on adventures.
