Growing up I was always around children as I lifeguarded, babysat, worked in a childcare center and coached several sports. I have worked with all ages, as well as children with special needs, I was introduced to Grasslands when I nannied for the Farnsworth family. Melissa asked if I wanted to come in and volunteer. I had never heard of Montessori before but when I walked in the toddler class I was so impressed with everything the children were doing and how calm the classroom was compared to the child care centers I had worked at previously. I came in several times to volunteer and eventually became an assistant in the toddler classroom. This year I got the amazing opportunity to be a co-lead teacher in the toddler room. I am so excited about having your children be a part of our classroom!
