What a blessing it is to join the wonderful team of teachers at Abounding Love!  I am so excited to return to the classroom and to be a part of your children's lives this school year.  I felt so very lucky last year to have found such a wonderful preschool for my own two children and am so grateful to now be a part of such an amazing Early Childhood program. 

My husband Vince and I have 2 wonderful children- Vince, age 5 and Bella age 6.  We love living in rural Johnson County, MO and spend as much time as possible outdoors with our family.  Much of our free time is spent at our lake home where my children enjoy fishing, swimming, boating, tubing and are learning to ski.  Bella is my artist- always working on a project or her latest creation.  She enjoys dance, cheerleading and golf, too.  My son Vince is convinced he will be the next John Deere when he grows up and loves tractors, horses and building.  My husband and his family are in the food industry- owning both a restaurant and a food distribution company- and we love to cook and grow our own herbs and vegetables. 

I grew up in Raymore, MO and attended Avila University and Johnson County Community College.  I minored in dance and history and originally planned on becoming a Physical Therapist.  Through my love of dance and years teaching in the studio, I discovered my love of children and my desire to be a part of their early learning experience.  I have enjoyed every minute of my teaching career and there is nothing better than watching a child learn, grow and discover- socially, emotionally and spiritually.

I have been married for 9 years and prior to being a stay at home mom, I worked in early childhood as a lead teacher or in a public school setting for 15 years.  Watching my own children "bloom" at Abounding Love made me miss teaching, and I have been blessed to return to the classroom and be a part of your children's learning experience.  Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of their lives, and I look forward to our year together.
