I have always been interested in teaching and children. I started off as a mobility instructor for the blind...yes, teaching blind and visually impaired people how to navigate their environment using a cane and common sense. After having my own children and participating in LAPP with them, I found I really enjoyed young children and the developmental process. I spent time at Santa Clara University in the program Early Intervention for Children With Special Needs, and I focused my teaching career on young children (birth to 5) with special needs, working another five years exclusively with this age group. Then I had my fourth child, and found my way back to LAPP. Since then, I have participated as a parent, on the Board, as an interim director, aide, summer program teacher, substitute teacher, and now, finally, I have joined LAPP as a teacher of the young 3's class. I enjoy the unique blend of working with children and families, and being part of the LAPP community as it grows throughout each school year. It is a joy watching children as they develop their confidence and skills as well as a love for the educational process in the LAPP environment.
