Academic Interests

Some of the Values that Shape My Work

It all begins with respect for the uniqueness of every child. Added to that is a strengths-based approach. I feel that as an educator, you must use a child’s interests and abilities to help develop the areas that are difficult for that child. In my work with graduate students in the field of education, I try to share the delight and enthusiasm I feel for working with young children. Teaching is a noble profession. I feel so fortunate to have been a teacher of young children, and now, a teacher of adults who care about young children, as I do.
