Originally from Pennsylvania in the United States, I attended West Chester University, where I received an undergraduate degree in both Elementary Education and Special Education. After going on to pursue a Masters Of Education, my journey then led me to California, where I worked as an Early Childhood Special Education Teacher. This will be my 12th year as an educator. I believe that given the right environment, tools, love, and support that all children can succeed. When I am not teaching in Costa Rica, you can find me at the beach, practicing yoga, surfing, or learning how to drive a manual.
