Hello SMS Community. I am a graduate from CSU, Sacramento with my B.A. in Early Development, Care and Education with a minor in school counseling. I currently work on the preschool team as a teacher and assistant director. Our philosophy at St. Mel Preschool is that children learn through thoughtful play and mindful learning activities. I strive each day to demonstrate an extraordinary amount of patience, creativity, insight, care and compassion for my young students and their families. I have been teaching in the Diocese of Sacramento for five years, including four years at St. Mel Preschool. I am truly blessed to have grown up in a Catholic environment where faith is the cornerstone of my family. I am currently engaged to be married in 2022 and I recently bought my first home. Some of my favorite things to do with my family are taking camping trips, going hiking with our dog, and creating new recipes in our kitchen.
