Busy Bees, Lunch Bunch & Summer Camp

I am fortunate to have been part of the wonderful Glenbrook community since my oldest son began as a Curious Cat in 2010. During this time, I served on the board and was president for several years. After my youngest son “graduated” in 2015, I was pleased to have the opportunity to stay on as the Extended Day (“Lunch Bunch”) teacher, and in 2017 was delighted to become the Busy Bees teacher as well.  Before becoming a stay-at-home mother throughout my boys’ infant-preschool years, I taught Spanish at the Boys’ Latin School and at the Gilman School, both in Baltimore, MD. 

I hold a Masters degree in Foreign Languages & Pedagogy (with Highest Honors) from the University of Delaware and a Bachelors degree in Spanish Literature (Cum Laude) from Dickinson College. I enjoy bringing this background into the Busy Bees enrichment program by holding Spanish-language themed Circle Times each week.  I am a strong advocate of Glenbrook’s play-based learning philosophies and Glenbrook’s cooperative approach to learning. My children continue to benefit from the strong social/emotional skills Glenbrook provided, and our entire family values the many lasting friendships we formed as part of the community.
