I am a doctoral studying Early Childhood Education within the Department of Curriculum and Instruction and a Master Teacher at UT's Priscilla Pond Flawn Child and Family Laboratory School (preschool children ages 4-5). Before coming to UT, I taught Kindergarten in the Boston Public Schools for ten years and was a Teaching Fellow at the Harvard Graduate School of Education for five years. My research interests include early childhood teacher education, early childhood teacher self-care, and the incorporation of trauma-informed teaching practices in early childhood learning spaces.
