I am so excited and happy to be working at Kids’ B.A.S.E. and The Little School. I am ready to take my over 30 years of experience in early childhood education and put it to use in the Scarsdale community and at KBLS. “It takes a village to raise a child” and I am thrilled to be an integral piece of that puzzle at KBLS.
Prior to coming to KBLS, I worked at Ridgeway Nursery School and Kindergarten in White Plains for 27 years. I started teaching at Ridgeway where I taught a 4s class and then Kindergarten for 9 years prior to taking over as director. I am also an adjunct professor at Nyack College where I work in the early childhood department teaching and mentoring new teachers. Prior to Ridgeway, I worked at Britannica Learning Center as well as the Port Chester and Edgemont Public Schools.
I am a team player and enjoy mentoring teachers and staff to be the best they can be. I have a very hands on approach with staff, parents and students at the school. My door is always open to everyone, I am a resource for staff and parents and I invite you to stop by and have a chat. I am excited for a long and fruitful tenure at Kids’ B.A.S.E. and The Little School.
