She was thrilled with the quality of the education her children received from Greeneview but more thankful for the quality people that invested in their lives.
She has experience teaching and directing a preschool and teaching in an elementary classroom. She worked with Battelle for Kids in Columbus from 2007-2013 on a study of Highly Effective Teachers and Teaching Practices and she assisted with fascilitating several workshops with the results of the study.
