My background in Child Development and Family relations includes a B.S and M.S. from the University of Idaho. I have had the priviledge to work with children and families, in one respect or another, for over 17 years. I was able to work for several years on a pilot project for the University of Idaho Parents as Teachers Program. Through this program we provided monthly home visits to parents throughout the State of Idaho sharing important child develpment information, pertinent activities to support their child's growth, assessments of development, and links to community resources.
I have also worked as a teacher of a 3-5 year-old ECEAP classroom with the Lewis-Clark Early Childhood Program, then a Child Care Coordinator with the school district at Tammany Alternative Center. I have taught many workshops through Community Action Partnership, the United Way, McSorley Elementary, and IdahoSTARS on topics ranging from Kindergarten Readiness to Strengthening Families.
I have been teaching Early Childhood Education with Lewis-Clark Stae college as an adjunct for 3 years, and now as an Assistant Professor since 2015. I look forward to continuing to provide students with a well rounded knowledge of the importance of being an Early Childhood Professional.
