Preschool Twos Teacher
I have a Master of Fine Arts from Massachusetts College of Art and Design and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Hawaii. I started teaching preschool while living in New York after finishing graduate school, and I fell in love with the everyday wonder and incredible growth that happens in preschool.
 
I discovered Virginia Chance School in 2014 when my husband Eric proposed that we consider moving from Hawaii to Louisville to be closer to his family. We visited Louisville to explore the idea of a move, and after touring the school, I told my husband, “I would move to Kentucky for this school.”
 
This fall will be the start of our fifth year at Virginia Chance School, and it will be my third year with the two-year-olds. I love finding out what the children are passionate about and exploring those interests deeply so that I am always learning new things alongside them. In my time outside of school, I love to sew dresses, bake bread, make art, and take TRX and hot yoga classes.
