On working at the Center

"It keeps life interesting. It is challenging and very rewarding. It is a wonder and a gift to see life through the eyes of a 3-year-old."

Teaching Philosophy

"I try to provide a safe, respectful and happy learning and social environment for my students. This includes a balance of nurture and discipline, play and routine, allowing for each child's individuality."


"I have lived in Wolfeboro since 1979. I have one daughter, Maggie, who lives in Washington. She is also an early childhood educator."
