Michelle enjoys her work with children because it keeps her on her toes and is never boring. Children are inspiring and push her to be a better version of herself, they also make her smile and laugh. She brings a warm, caring and positive influence to the children in her care and hopes her work can help make the world a better place. Michelle has been working with children since 2004 and has years of babysitting experience as well. She brings her background in fine arts and her love of animals to the classroom. She is skilled at being flexible and adaptable and is genuinely curious about the world around her. She doesn’t get bothered by a child asking “why?” because she also wants to know. When she isn’t teaching, Michelle enjoys dog training, including agility and trick training. She has a cockatiel as well. She also loves skydiving and tries to go at least annually.
Education and Training: Bachelor’s degree in Art Education from Ithaca College and a Primary Montessori Teaching Certificate from CGMS. Red Cross First Aid/CPR certification.
