I really enjoy teaching young children in the Community Based Pre-k Program at The Children’s Place. I’ve been in CBPK nearly 10 years and with Kooken as our supporting campus, we just keep improving! My focus area is the use of Higher Order Thinking Questions throughout the day. I have served on the Site Based Decision Making Committee for Community Based Pre-k for two years. I am from Pennsylvania and I have lived in Texas for over 35 years. I’ve been married for 30 years and we have two grown daughters. I have an Associates Degree in Child Development from TCC. I also have a Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood Education from UT Arlington. I was born to teach Pre-K!
