Bright Beginnings Early Learning Center

About Our Educators

  • Q. Why did you become an Educator?

    I always knew I wanted to be a teacher from the time I was little. I love being a part of helping children learn and grow, it is truly the most rewarding career I could ask for!
  • Q. What's your favorite part about being an Educator?

    I have a strong passion for education and believe that children should play a part in their learning experiences. I love being able to give them the tools to explore and discover the world around them while fostering a love of learning.
  • Q. Do you have any special experience parents should know about?

    I graduated with my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and taught at a private school in Montana for five years before joining the Teach for America program and returning to Colorado. I taught at a charter school in Northeast Denver for five years while completing my Master's in Early Childhood Literacy. During my years in the school system I taught every grade from kindergarten through fifth. However, my passion is early childhood education, which is why I have transitioned to preschool. I cannot wait to work with your little ones and share my knowledge and teaching experience with them.
  • Q. Anything else parents should know about you or your family?

    My husband, Patrick, and I have an amazing four year old son named Rylan and a very friendly Boston Terrier named Roger.

About Our School

  • Q. What's your early childhood education philosophy?

    I believe children learn best through hands-on experiences and I follow a play-based model with exposure to literature and small group instruction. Social-emotional development is very important to me and I will foster these skills in your little ones as well.
  • Q. What's your school set-up like?

    Our open play area is set up with blocks, dramatic play, dress-up and centers for children to explore throughout most of our day. I also have a separate area for small group instruction time, reading, and teacher led activities. The backyard is fully fenced with a playground and interactive toys for outdoor fun!
  • Q. What snacks & meals do you provide?

    Breakfast, morning snack, lunch, and an afternoon snack.
  • Q. Anything else parents should know?

    I believe in a positive approach to behaviors and use redirection and reinforcement to encourage and aid children in their development. If the weather permits, we will also spend time outside daily.

About Our Parent Relationships

  • Q. What do you expect from me as a parent?

    I believe we are partners in your child's learning and growth so I strive for open and honest communication. I want us to work together to make sure your needs, and those of your child, are being met and will be here to celebrate milestones and overcome challenges with you and your child.
  • Q. Do you encourage visits from parents?

    Absolutely! I do encourage routines with our little learners so I would prefer scheduled times.
