Career

Wee Works Preschool

Teacher

I taught in the 4 to 5-year-old classroom. This is where I first fell in love with working with younger children, early literacy and the art of telling stories. The school has a philosophy of learning through natural play, lots of social interaction and experimentation with the world around them. It was a fabulous experience that offered me daily chances to use my creativity while helping young children become the best possible versions of themselves. www.weeworkspdx.com/
