I taught children in a variety of 0-8 settings for 12 years. During those years, I wrote about my experiences teaching and learning on a reflective blog, Bakers and Astronauts. Since leaving the classroom in 2016, I have been focusing on a variety of new projects:

I lead workshops for educators, write a weekly email newsletter for people in the Early Childhood field; and I am the founder + director of Play Lab.

I make playlists for playing, napping, dancing, and more.

I live in Bellingham, Washington and travel domestically and internationally to talk about childhood, play, and curriculum.
