It takes a village to educate a child and we are pretty proud of our village here at ABCD.  Our faculty and Board of Directors are passionate about education, community, and our students!

“The secret in education lies in respecting the student”                                                          -Ralph Waldo Emerson

As co-founder of ABCD, and Curriculum Director, I bring over 20 years of experience educating children, a B.S. in Psychology, and an M.Ed. in Early Childhood Education. I know from experience the importance of social-emotional learning and the consequences when our schools ignore it. As VP at The Princeton Review, I learned first hand how broken the system is. American Education doesn’t value true learning, just the ability to represent it on a test. My goal at Apple Blossom Center for Discovery is to fill that gap and get your child excited about learning.

“It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.”
– Albert Einstein

My career started as a medical assistant. I loved helping families in a clinical setting but after taking a position as a Special Needs Nanny for a medically fragile child, I discovered my true passion is for teaching! I have several years of experience as a nanny and working in a small private school as a Pre-K teacher. I am excited to bring all of my experience to ABCD. My goal at Apple Blossom Center for Discovery is teaching our youngest students that learning is both fun and educational!
