Why you choose to teach at CGL:

I appreciate and love the Reggio philosophy! It is a gift to get to teach through the avenue of student interest and relationships. Each educator here is dedicated to knowing their students, continuing to challenge themselves to grow creatively, and support one another as a team.  

Favorite moment in the classroom:

While teaching 1st grade, it was an honor to recognize the moments when a student also realized that they were capable of reading! To see their eyes light up and joy overflow when this truly challenging skill of reading begins to flow for them!
