 This is my second year at St. Gregory's Preschool. I have always loved working with young children. While my Bachelor's degree is in business, I worked with children as a babysitter, tutor, and substitute teacher during transitions and throughout college. I was born and raised in Arlington, Texas. I have an amazing husband, and we have been married for 8 years. We have two sweet girls, ages 5 and 3, who are currently making their way through St. Gregory's Preschool. They love it here and always look forward to coming. I love working with this age. I am so excited to be a part of each child's life and to help them learn and grow.
