I am an Early Childhood Educator with experience in a variety of educational and community settings, including the public library. I have taught classes in curriculum development and various aspects of child growth and development at both the community college and university levels. I particularly enjoyed working with an Early Reading First grant. It was an opportunity to nurture educators in creating literacy-rich early childhood classroom environments. Working with the Children’s Reading Foundation of Dona Ana County allows me to continue my passion for forming community partnerships on behalf of children and their families, as well working with experienced and fun colleagues!
