I've been working here at Apple Tree since May of this year. I am currently attending NCC to take classes to apply to their nursing program. I am interested in working in pediatrics so I am taking this opportunity to work with children. I am also currently taking an early childhood education course. I enjoy teaching the children at Apple Tree very much!

Hi Families! I will be teaching the 3 yr old room alongside Ali this year. I am from Fairfield and formerly worked at Pumpkin Preschool in Westport. I absolutely adore working with kids and helping them learn and grow.  In January, I will continue my education at NCC in Early Childhood Education. I am so excited to have a year full of fun with your child!
