My professional interests are in the areas of early childhood curriculum. I truly enjoy working with young children and sharing in the responsibility of their early care and education. I have worked with preschool age children and have been a director of preschool aged programs. Through working with undergraduate early childhood development majors I am able to share my experiences to help insure a fresh supply of excited early childhood professionals.
