In addition to working as the Assistant Director, I am also a teacher for the toddlers. I have seven years of experience working in a childcare. I graduated from St. Mary’s University of Winona with a Master’s degree in Education. In my free time, I enjoy running, watching football (Go Vikings!), shopping, and spending time with my family and friends. The thing I love most about the Academy is we are a smaller, faith-based center which allows the teachers to connect on this basis on personal level with each family. I have worked for a non-faith-based chain childcare company before, so I know the difference the Academy makes by offering families a positive faith-based atmosphere and learning program.
