I graduated from Indiana University in 2000 with Bachelor Degrees in Psychology and Sociology. While in school the focus of my studies was on development, learning, families and the impact of schools. I am taking my time in pursuit of a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education. I have worked in the field of Early Childhood Education since 2001 and have experience working with children ages 6 weeks to 13 years. I have been working at Campus View Child Care Center since April of 2005. When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my husband, our two sons, and our dog and cats. In my spare time I love to cook and feel that food has the power to bring people together. We often have cooking and baking projects in our classroom as well. Making connections with children and families is the most rewarding part of working at Campus View.
I recently graduated from Indiana University with a degree in Outdoor Recreation, Parks, and Human Ecology. Despite my bachelor’s being in recreation my focus has always been in child development. I believe the two are strongly connected and that children benefit in numerous ways from spending time in a nature. Now that I have my degree under my belt I plan to continue my schooling and eventually earn my PhD in child psychology with a focus on children aged 0-7. I have experience working with children from the ages of six months up to thirteen years whether this be a daycare, camp, or park setting. Outside of work I run a small farm where I raise goats, rabbits, chickens, and organic vegetables. I love to share my passion for nature with children and immensely enjoy bringing two together. In the classroom I like to give kids the opportunity to work closely with homegrown foods, learn daily care of plants, or participate activities about plants and animals. Watching kids make connections to the world around them and learning by doing is why I love what I do!
I earned my BA in Elementary Education from Purdue University in May 2001 and moved to Bloomington to begin my career in the Early Childhood Education field. While working as a kindergarten teacher and then as an ECE administrator, I took several graduate courses through IU and attended many early childhood workshops, conferences, and classes. I have been a lead co-teacher at CVCCC since August 2009. I have always loved reading, and I share this passion daily with the children through various types of books, felt board stories, and finger play rhymes. I am honored to work amongst a group of early childhood professionals who are caring, thoughtful, knowledgeable, and fully in support of Continuity of Care for infants and toddlers. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my husband, our son, and our families and friends–hiking, cooking, sewing, traveling, and exploring our amazing Bloomington community!
I graduated from Franklin College in 2007 with a BA degree in Elementary Education. After graduating, I taught in a Kindergarten classroom and a 4th/5th grade split classroom before deciding to focus on early childhood education. I have worked with infants through Pre-K, as well as an administrative role. I started my career at CVCCC as a co-teacher in August of 2017, where I have had the privilege of working in an environment that encourages children’s development in a creative and age appropriate manner. When I am not working, I enjoy cooking, baking, reading and spending time with my family.
I graduated from Indiana University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Anthropology with a minor in Comparative Literature. Throughout college I worked at Hoosier Courts Nursery School (another IU child care program), which led me to my current position at Campus View where I have worked since 2011.
All my life I’ve been a very curious person, I am interested in how and why things work and how and why people work the way they do. This interest led me to pursue my degree in anthropology and I believe it has also led me to a career in early childhood education. I try to provide an environment that provokes inquisition and stimulates creativity in a fun and developmentally appropriate manner.
Working at CVCCC is always adventure! Each day provides the opportunity for new experiences and change, both in the classroom and out. The curriculum is driven by the children which makes way for a constantly evolving culture to form within the classroom. No class is the same, no child is the same, and no teacher is the same. Each person provides a valuable and critical perspective on our program as a whole.
I graduated from IU with a degree in Early Childhood Education and a minor in Special Education. I have experience working in Headstart, Child Care Centers, and First Steps. I came to CVCCC in July of 2011 as the program assistant and moved to my current teaching position in April of 2012. One of the best parts of working at CVCCC is the teamwork atmosphere. When I am not at CVCCC, I enjoy spending time with my three children.
I am a transplant from Texas who graduated from Indiana University in 2003 with a Bachelor’s Degree in General Studies with minors in Family Studies, Sociology, and Criminal Justice focusing on early childhood development. Upon graduation I began working at Campus View Child Care Center where I have had the pleasure of getting to know children and families through continuity of care. In 2014, I received my Master’s Degree from the IU School of Education in Early Childhood Education. I have worked in the field of Early Childhood Education for over 20 years. When I am not working I am enjoying time with my husband, two children, two vibrant dogs and a cat!
In 2013, I completed my BA in Studio Art from DePauw University, and in 2017 I graduated with an MA in Arts Administration from Indiana University. My studies have primarily focused on arts education, and I enjoy sharing my passion for art, particularly painting, with children.
I started working at CVCCC as a teacher’s aid in 2014 and am excited and honored to be a part of the caring and knowledgeable CVCCC community. When I’m not working, you can find me painting, hiking, reading, cooking, or walking my dog, Huck.
I have a MS in Early Childhood Education from Indiana University. Before becoming a director, I was a classroom teacher in various different early childhood settings for 21 years. I’ve been the director of Campus View Child Care Center for 8 years. I enjoy working with and serving the needs of children and their families. One of the most wonderful things about working with infants and toddlers is observing their development as well as their drive to make sense of the world that surrounds them. I feel very fortunate to be part of a program that nurtures and supports children and their families through relationship based care.
In my spare time I enjoy reading, knitting, cooking, and taking long walks.
