Why you choose to teach at CGL: 

I wanted to work at CGL because it is such a special place where children can explore, develop skills, and pursue their interests in a way that is unique to each child. I love the emphasis on enjoying the outdoors and the amazing community that is Vail and the Eagle Valley. I especially love the warm and enthusiastic environment that the faculty and students harmoniously create together!

Favorite moment in the classroom:

I’ve loved meeting and connecting with all of the Room E kiddos, and learning their interests! My favorite moment in the classroom so far has been making our own green, glittery bouncy balls and watching the kids enjoy playing with something they made themselves.

Hobbies and Interests:

My hobbies include a love of being outside whether it is skiing, rafting, camping, walking, or hiking. I also love to cook, paint, and make jewelry!
