After I earned a B.S. in Sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, I continued my education here at the University of Minnesota in Early Childhood Education and later earned an M. Ed.  I teach 3 – 5 year olds at the Shirley G. Moore Laboratory School as well as mentor teacher candidates in the Early Childhood Education program.  My teaching philosophy is based on constructivist and sociocultural theories.
