I am delighted to be joining the Primrose “Family.” I have been working in the Early Childhood field for over 10 years. I started working as a floater. I then became an infant teacher before moving to a toddler teacher. I love working with young children. It’s incredible being able to watch children grow and develop new skills. I graduated from Rutgers University with a Bachelors degree in History. On the weekends I love taking my dog Gus hiking in the Watchug Reservation. I also love spending time with my family. I have one older brother and an older sister. I also have three nephews, Alexander, Zachary and Donald and Robert. I am most excited about meeting all of our new families that will be joining us this school year!
Hi, I'm Miss Kristie!I hold a master’s degree in social and community psychology with a specialty in guidance from Fairleigh Dickinson University. Previously, I held the role as Director for 11 years at a nonprofit organization and oversaw the daily operations of fifteen before and after school enrichment program sites, two preschools, and one wrap-around kindergarten enrichment program. I was a certified substitute teacher in two Somerset County school districts working with preschool through grade twelve. Most recently, I had the opportunity to work as a one-on-one paraprofessional in both a special educational preschool program and a learning language development classroom. Working with children and their families is my passion. One of my most rewarding experiences, however, is being a mom to six of my own children ranging in ages from ten to seventeen.
I have enjoyed meeting all of the children at Primrose and look forward to working with all the staff and families. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
