I was raised on a hobby farm just outside the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul. Having not fit into the traditional education model myself, I always dreamed of building a place that I would have liked to come, knowing that other kids might like it too. This is why I built Creative Bridges. My college education is in Early Childhood Special Education, along with Kindergarten to Grade 3. I have lived in various states such as Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, North Carolina, Tennessee, and finally Colorado.
Listed are points in my life in which helped shape me into who I am today:
Navigating through all my years of traditional education only to realize that there are other ways with just as good, or better, outcomes.
Being a mom to my 16 year old son.
Relocating 11 times in 17 years, and seeing lots of programs, kids, communities, and cultures.
After teaching in Head Start programs in the states listed above, I discovered a farm where I could break free from traditional models and guide preschool children in a way that nurtured and respected them. This was my first glimpse into non-traditional education.
Becoming a Master Graduate of Rapport Leadership International in a two year time period and then going on to become a volunteer assisting the trainers in teaching classes.
Building Creative Bridges in Evergreen, Colorado.
Living life as though every day is a learning experience, brought on by the world, created just for me.
