CSPS Director
Early Education Specialist
2Day, 3Day & PreK

I have been with Crystal Springs Co-op Preschool for many years, not only as the Director/Instructor but as a parent. These 17 years have been filled with the greatness of watching parents/children navigate the world of preschool. Learning how to make friends, work together and enjoy the wonders of early childhood. This community has and continues to  be a blessing. I love being a part of such a special time in a child’s life. This journey of preschool goes by so fast so I hope that you will come join us at CSPS to experience for yourself the greatness of what we can offer your child and you as a parent. It will be so worth it!

Toddler & Multi-Age

Hello! I am passionate about supporting child development and relationships while empowering families to carve their own unique parenting path. I have a MA in Education from Lesley University and a BA in Vocal Performance and Music Education from UW. Outside of work, you can find me playing with my kids, singing and playing many music instruments, dancing and doing Zumba, wearing crazy leggings, and going on adventures around town.

Outdoor Curriculum Specialist

Let's go outside! Outdoor play has always been important at CSPS. Especially for a child, there is no substitute for real interaction with nature, physical activity, and the tactile and sensory experiences provided by an outdoor adventure. As the parent of a teenage son and a teacher of students of all ages, I understand the increasing importance (in our technology-driven culture) of outdoor experiences for child development, including hands-on, physical activities. Every day is a new adventure in our outdoor classroom!

Rain or Shine we head outside!
