    I was born and raised in Morristown and only recently moved to Seymour about a year ago. I’ve always loved working with kids and I feel like it comes naturally to me. Doing this job has been a dream of mine since I was 10 years old. I enjoy spending my time with family and friends as well as drawing and painting in my free time. A favorite quote of mine is written by Dorothea Brande who says “ A child's mind is not a container to be filled but rather a fire to be kindled ” .

    I feel like this quote resonates with me because teaching from this perspective has changed how I view teaching as a whole. I am beyond excited about being a teacher here at Primrose. My goal is to be a positive influence and to help your children reach their fullest potential. I look forward to getting to know all of the students here at Primrose!
