I first fell in love with Miquon as a parent. We were looking for a school for my daughter that was responsive to children’s needs, development, and how they learn best—Miquon ticked all those boxes and then some. Now both of my children attend Miquon, and the three of us feel so fortunate we get to learn and grow here every day.

Before coming to the east coast and to Miquon, I taught second grade at an independent school in Oakland, CA and art at a Title 1 school. As a former progressive school student myself, I believe in helping children develop ownership and voice. In addition to my teaching role, I am also an artist, former rock climber, and bilingual educator.
