2018/19 faculty

I have been teaching young children since I graduated from college in 1986.  From the moment I walked into Lansdowne Friends School 12 years ago, I knew it was different.  The social curriculum taught here is just as important as the academics.  I could not imagine myself at any other school.  Lansdowne Friends School is not only my place of employment it is my family.

Pre-K is my calling.  I cherish the enthusiasm and energy young children bring to school.  Watching the children flourish through the years is like watching a garden grow.  Being there when a child discovers blue and yellow make green are magical moments.  The best feeling is when two children are having a disagreement and they stop on their own and talk it out, and end by giving a spontaneous hug. They are learning to be caring members of our class, our school, and the world.

When I am not at school, I am at home with my children, my two cats, and my two dogs.  I enjoy walking, swimming, and relaxing.
