Kids Junction Teacher Bios, Madison
I received my Associated Degree from UW-Richland. Since then, I have taken many classes through work to continue my education in the childcare field.
Since high school, I babysat for families. After college, I started working in a daycare. After working there for three years, I moved to Madison, where I nannied for a wonderful family for an additional three years before joining the Baby Junction team in 2015.
In the summer, I like camping and kayaking with my family and friends. I also enjoy woodworking with my dad.
I graduated from UW-Madison in 2014 with my degree in Elementary Education. I currently hold my Wisconsin teaching license in middle childhood-early adolescence.
When I was 12 years old, I started working for the Park Crest Pool Lunch Bunch, where I met several families that I would continue to nanny for throughout middle school. In high school, I started teaching at Badger Gymnastics Academy and went on to become a supervisor and a summer camp director there. After graduating college, I did long-term subbing at several middle schools in Madison. I then went back to Badger and started training for the Tots (1 to 3-year-olds) classes and it was then that I discovered I really enjoy teaching the little ones.
In my free time, I enjoy watching TV and playing video games with my boyfriend (Dan), taking my dog (Loki) for walks, going to the gym, and painting my nails.
I graduated from Portage High School in 2014. I’m currently enrolled at Northeast Wisconsin Technical College for a degree in Early Childhood Education.
I started babysitting and taking childcare classes while in high school. Soon after my daughter was born, I worked as a Lead Teacher for a year with infants. During that time, I continued to take childcare classes. I’m very excited to join Kids Junction and help your child grow!
In my free time, I enjoy reading, Pinterest, hiking, and fishing! I spend most of my time with my daughter and husband.
I am currently studying Music Education at UW-Eau Claire and plan to graduate in the Spring of 2020 with a degree in Instrumental and General Music Teaching.
With 14 cousins all younger than me, it’s no wonder I spent many evenings and weekends in high school babysitting. In Summer 2014, I nannied for a family with an infant son, and in 2016 and 2017, I worked for a family with two elementary-aged children as a summer nanny. I am excited to join Kids Junction in Summer 2018.
When I’m not working or in school, I enjoy reading and sewing. I love to spend time with my family and friends and spend time outside whenever I can.
