I completed my studies in early childhood education with a focus on Waldorf education in Germany in 1983. Since then I have trained to worked in many capacities in the field from being a Kindergarten and pre school teacher to owning my own child care business as well as managing local child care centers and overseeing an IT program with a Young Parent component. In my most recent work history I have managed federal and provincial programs such as CAPC and Childcare Resource and Referral. The move from teaching children to teaching adults seemed a natural one which lead me to complete the Provincial Instructor Diploma. Since I started teaching I have embarked on a learning journey to study the Early Learning Framework and the child care system in New Zealand first hand. I incorporate the knowledge I gained during my travels in my courses and my passion for early learning and children is a driving force in my teaching. My goal is to inspire students with the same enthusiasm for working with children and families that has guided me throughout my work and ignited my career.
