Why you choose to teach at CGL: CGL is the best of the best. I can’t imagine working in another school that welcomes children and families to learn and wonder quite the way we do here at Children’s garden.
Favorite moment in the classroom: In my first weeks at CGL one of the young learners arrived early at school and rather than greet me with a simple hello he wrapped his arms around me and said “Good Morning Ms. Nicky, make a wish!” Now I like to start each morning with a wish for the day.
Hobbies and interests: When I am not chasing a toddler at home, I’m skiing. When the snow isn’t flying you can find me rooting for the Red Sox and learning to bake at high altitude.
