As an educator, I have greeted preschool children for over twenty years. What I appreciate most is the joy of being with children and the teachings they offer me every day.

Prior to early education, I was in the business sector as a purchasing manager. I majored in International Relations and Finance at Brown University. I left the company after thirteen years as I focused on raising four children in Sherborn. It was during this time that I became interested in early education. I have loved working at our school for the past twenty years as I love our approach to education.

As a director, my goal has been to first and foremost, bring my best to our children, families, and teachers. My intention is to keep Noanet Nursery School a warm and safe place for our school community.

Assistant Director

I graduated from UMASS Amherst with an education degree and have been teaching for over 30 years. I began my career at Riverside Children’s Center in Newton and after staying home to care for my children for a few years, I went back to teaching at Explorations in Medfield. I live in Medfield with my husband and have raised 2 girls there that are 4th generation in our house.

The smiles that young children bring to my face every day is what I enjoy the most about teaching. Their excitement to come to school, their eagerness to learn and explore and watching them grow are some of my favorite aspects. I enjoy the challenge of developing new and exciting curriculum for children each year. I feel so fortunate to have been a part of this amazing school and community for the past 12 years.

My path to becoming an educator was one of life’s happy accidents. I graduated from Worcester Polytechnic Institute with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. After working as an engineer for ten years, I became a mother and wanted to focus my energy on my family. The time I had raising my daughter and son has been one of my greatest life treasures.

When my children began school, I decided to fill some of my time combining two things that I was really enjoying: practicing yoga and being with young children. I got certified to teach yoga to kids in 2008 and began teaching yoga at a few different preschools in Sharon, where I live. After a few years, I was asked to step in as a long-term substitute at one preschool and then I continued to get my teacher certification and signed on as a classroom teacher in 2013.

I love the sense of empowerment young children get when they learn something new. Their minds are so open to observing and understanding new things, I really enjoy watching them make connections and share their newfound knowledge.

I graduated from the University of Vermont with a BA in Sociology. Before I started my career in early childhood education, I worked in the insurance industry for 15 years. I chose to leave the business world to raise my 3 sons. I currently live in Wellesley where both my husband and I grew up. I have been teaching preschool for over 7 years.

I love helping young children learn and grow. Seeing their smiles in the classroom every day brings me such joy. One of my favorite parts of teaching is sharing in the curiosity and eagerness that children bring to new experiences. I truly believe that children learn best through play in a warm, safe, and supportive environment.

I grew up in a bilingual home in Mexico City. I graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder with a degree in Kinesiology. Shortly after graduating, I moved to Massachusetts and started working in a nursery school in Wellesley. I quickly learned that my true passion was working with young children, and I returned to school to be certified as an early childhood lead teacher. I worked for 14 years at the Wellesley Nursery School in the Hills. After having my 4th child, I decided to take a break and stay home with my children. I have 3 girls and 1 boy, and our family has lived in Wellesley for over 25 years.

Young children’s curiosity, honesty, and awe about the world around them is one of the things I enjoy most about teaching this age group. Every day is different, and I look forward to the daily challenges being a Tiger class teacher will bring.
