I have been Part of the Northlake Montessori team since March 2015. I have worked with kids of a variety of ages. I was a Pre-Tod teacher for 1.5 years and a Pre-K4 teacher for 2 years! It has been a pleasure to be able to be a part of each child’s life through every stage! I’m so excited to start this fall as the Lead Pre-K3 teacher! I have learned so much from every teacher I have worked with and am looking to bring my knowledge and love for the Montessori philosophy to Pre-K3.

During my high School years, I maintained a STEM heavy curriculum but fell in love with history and the Social sciences (including Childhood Psychology). This led to me being a Political Science Major during my first years of college, during college my passion for foreign countries and their languages grew stronger. This led me to learning a variety of languages such as Japanese, Mandarin, Korean and most recently French, in addition to my native language, Castilian (Spanish). I am continuing my education at Lake Washington Tech, obtaining my Early Childhood Education certificates.

When I’m not in the classroom, I’m probably on a trip or planning my next trip. My love for languages; which I strongly believe help open doors, especially when travelling; has led me to travel to a few countries! I have been to Peru, Japan, South Korea, Thailand, Canada, Greece, U.K, and France. My husband and I look forward to visiting a couple more countries the coming year but have yet to decide which!

I am a recently married woman as of 04/27/2019, My husband Will and I have two fur babies, Rosie a young labradoodle and Sophie an Australian Shepherd. We love to take our pups on walks, especially to the Marymoor dog park. I enjoy doodling, collecting stickers and caring for my plants! I have been Plant based for over 4years and I love animals of all kinds. I strive to teach our kiddos to show kindness to even the littlest of critters!

My goal as a Pre-K teacher is to help our kids be able to express themselves, ask questions and follow directions, to help them grow into well rounded individuals!

I look forward to getting to know all of you and your children and be able to provide a happy, fun and safe environment.  If you have any questions or need any help please don’t be afraid to reach out.

We will have small group work, as well as independent work. When new work is introduced, a lesson will be presented in opening circle, showing the children how to perform the skill. As their teachers, we promise to keep new and challenging work available and help guide them in being successful.
