Favorite Quote: “While we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about.” – Angela Schwindt

Favorite place to travel: My all time favorite is the beach. Nothing refreshes my soul like the warm sun, sounds of beautiful mother nature and warm sand between my toes.  Aruba, Vancouver, locally Fossil Creek.

Why do you love working with kids:  Working with children has always been a passion of mine for as long as can remember. There are so many reasons why I love working with children. The most rewarding part of my job is the pure joy, excitement, laughter, love which come from every child I have had the pleasure of working with. To celebrate their progress whether big or small, is such an honor to be a part of. Helping to enrich the lives of children and their family brings me so much joy. I am blessed to be a part of their lives.
