About Me


 I began my career in Head Start, but happily taught at the Bergen Community College Child Development Center from September of 1985 until my retirement in June 2011.


I have conducted workshops for the NJ Association for the Education of Young Children and the National Coalition for Campus Children's Centers. I am also an active member of and volunteer for the Monarch Teacher Network.

Sharing concepts of learning and development through nature education for young children is my passion.

 I am an animal advocate  and I do what I can to help the Hug A Bunny Rabbit Rescue group and my local animal shelter. My hobbies include   nature photography and hiking.My husband,four bunnies, one guinea pig and two cats are my family.


 It is a pleasure for me to share my love of nature,life and learning with children and other early childhood educators .


I hope you enjoy exploring this website.
