Hello! I love my job as the Early Childhood Coordinator at LCWM! It is my job to manage any programming with children ages 0-5 and to work with families and staff to support students Pk-grade 3. I coordinate the Little Knights Preschool Program, Little Knights ECFE and Early Childhood Screening.
I am originally from the Winnebago area and graduated from Granada-Huntley East Chain HS. I graduated from MSU in 1992 with a Major in Family Life Child Development and a minor in Early Childhood Education with a licensure in Parent Education. I worked in Mankato for 14 years before joining the LCWM team in 2002. Things have really changed since those first years here with our EC programs! I went from teaching a 2 day class with 12 students to now enrolling 120 preschoolers in our classes! I have been the Early Childhood Coordinator since 2013. I am also the lead Parent Educator for our ECFE program and am passionate about helping parents walk through the journey of parenthood.
I have been very blessed to be involved with the Children's Museum of Southern Minnesota since it's beginning and now proudly serve on the board of directors. I also am on the Minnesota Association of Family Educators board, serve as the coordinator for the Blue Earth/Nicollet Co Early Childhood Dental Network, and do training for Region 9.
My husband Scott and I have 3 daughters. Many of you know Miranda, who teaches our Knights Plus program! We enjoy spending time at our cabin "Up North" and I am working at being a good golf partner!
I am here to help connect families to our district and help support them in any way I can! Let me know if there is anything I can do to support your family!
