I am so excited to continue my journey as the 3 year old teacher at TCA. I was born in Tacoma WA. I lived there until I was about 3 years old and then moved to San Fernando Valley Ca. I grew up there and moved to FL at the age of 16 with my mom to be closer to my grandparents. I graduated high school in 2001 and became a mom a few years later. I am a mother of 2 young men Devin and Julian. Since graduating high school I have worked in numerous photography studios as well as a few Childcare centers where I have earned DCF training. I love children and realize that no matter what path I take, it will be working with children or young adults. In my free time I photograph and attend live music and art festivals of all sorts as well as anything that is water related. Spending quality time with my family and friends is very important to me. I look forward to getting to know each of my students as well as the parents.

I have been teaching for over 15 years. The early childhood field has been an excellent opportunity for me to observe how children learn and develop into independent people and I enjoy being a part of that. I have my master’s degree in English and a Montessori training for children aged 3-6. Presently. I am working intensively to obtain an additional BA in Early Education. Born and raised in Poland, I moved to Florida in 2017. I am married and have 2 sons. I have a dog named Lula. In my spare time, I like to read, travel and find ways to develop myself as a teacher and as a human being. I love seeing the children's individual development grow and blossom into unique personalities. Children are always eager to learn about the surrounding world, and I like to grow with them. I enjoy planning and implementing a curriculum that teaches children new skills and ideas. I am excited to bring my experience and knowledge into the 2-year-old classroom and look forward to meeting all of you parents!
