Temple Beth Shalom Children's Center
Preschool Teacher
Needham, MA
I believe in supporting the whole child and strive to discover the unique gifts that each child and each family bring.  I have been a preschool teacher at Temple Beth Shalom Children's Center since August of 2016, co teaching a class of three year olds.  Before that, while I was also at home with my children,  I had many opportunities to work and volunteer in their preschools and elementary school, and eventually substitute taught at local Jewish and secular preschools.  I have a degree in Environmental Policy from Boston University and have worked for national environmental organizations.  I am eager to share my passion for taking care of our world with the children and families.
