Hello Families!

As we begin another year of learning I am so eager to build a relationship with each and every one of you. This will be my fourth year at Isaacs and my ninth year teaching early childhood education. I enjoy watching each child's story unfold as they find their unique voice.

My lifelong passion is early childhood education, especially the Reggio Emilia philosophy which is built on the relationship between the child, the teacher, the parent and the community. I am a longtime member of NAEYC (The National Association for the Education of Young Children) and enjoy staying up to date on the research behind play based learning. My biggest interests are children's picture books, block building, and understanding the development of schemas in children's play.

At home I enjoy spending time with my husband and our two young children. We love to travel, whether in North Texas or around the world! Our oldest child was even born in Japan! We are still pretty new to Plano, but we enjoy getting out around the town to visit museums, pools, and all the fun kid places.
