Education Specialist, Trainer, Consultant, Speaker
For a decade, I was a full-time Preschool Teacher before transitioning in 2021 to my current role as a School Programs Education Specialist and informal Educator working with PreK-5th grade at the California Academy of Sciences.
I work with an anti-bias (link to an article I was interviewed for), culturally-responsive, IDEAL (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Accessibility, Liberation), social-emotional, neurobiological/trauma-informed, STEM/STEAM, creative arts and inquiry-based lens. Because I was in the classroom for 12+ years, I know how challenging the position is and want to offer as much practical support, self-care and affirmation for Early Childhood Education Providers as I can.
For meaningful support in your program, please reach out. As an independent contractor, I would love to be a warm, reflective and responsive resource to educators and what they envision for their program.
