What makes a good day at Long Ridge for me:

A “good day” begins as I delight in greeting each child, easing the transition from home, and providing a comfortable start for a happy and productive time in school. A “good day” continues as each child freely explores, creates, and interacts with classmates and teachers, becoming independent and a “friend” in the classroom community.


Each day I am grateful to be teaching, enjoying the company of children, guiding, and taking pride in the development of each unique child.


I am inspired by:

The natural kindness and empathy seen in children inspires hope. As a teacher, it is my responsibility to model and nurture emotional and social intelligence to secure a foundation of loving kindness, the ideal upon which our school is based.


One of my hidden talents:

I love to dance at family celebrations and according to those who indulge, I prepare delicious meals.


Something surprising about me:

It might surprise you that I am called “Bubbie,” grandmother to seven and soon eight! I grew up in a large family of sisters, brothers, and close cousins, so my happy place is among little ones.
