Kids Junction Private 4K Teacher Bios, Madison
I Graduated from UW Madison with and Elementry Ed Degree. I have a minor in Health Education and have had extensive training in caring for children and adults with special needs. I also completed early child training at Madison College to enable me to open a family daycare in Madison.
Ive been working with Children for 40+ years. I became a respite caregiver for families with children needing special help and opened a licensed family day care in the late 80s early 90s then decided to finish my degree in Elementry Ed. I then had children of my own and home schooled for 12 years while caring for the children of several families. As my children got older I became a licensed substitute for several districts in Dane County.
I love being with kids, seeing them light up as they learn. I love to teach about God and am a devoted Christian, wife and mother to 4 adults.
I graduated in May of 2019 from Southwest Wisconsin Technical College with an associates degree in early childhood education.
I started babysitting in my hometown when I was about 12-13 years old up until I graduated high school. When I moved to Fennimore to start my college career, I began a job at the SWTC Child Care Center working with all different age groups, but mostly the 1-year olds. I worked with them for two years until I graduated in May of 2019. In January of 2020, I began my journey at Friendly Frogs Child Care. I was an aide at the center until February of 2021, when I became the lead teacher for their 3-4 year old classroom. I was the lead teacher there up until I moved to the Madison area and joined the Kids Junction team in July of 2022.
I grew up in the small town of Hillsboro, WI with my parents, 2 brothers, and my sister. I have 2 nephews who are my absolute world, Bentlee and Carson. I was a CNA from the age of 16 until just before I turned 21 and decided that I wanted to continue pursuing my love for teaching. In my free time, I love cooking, crafting, or watching my favorite show. I enjoy traveling and trying new foods and meeting new people. I live in the area with my cat, Archie, and I spend a lot of my time cooking, online shopping, and hanging out with friends and family.

I graduated from UW-Milwaukee with a Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education with a minor in science and social studies.
I have worked in childcare for 14 years with 11 of them being Kids Junction. I’ve worked in all aspects of childcare, from 3K to Art to office administration, and found that my heart is in the classroom.
I live outside of Mount Horeb with my husband and 3 boys and our dog. In my spare time I enjoy making t-shirts, reading, scrolling Amazon and walking around target.
