What I do at MNW
I organize and oversee community events for MNW alumni and the community. I oversee Pints of Interest, Helping Hands, SEEDS, Montessori-to-Go, workshops, and other continuing education events. Sometimes I give tours, and love to talk about Montessori to anyone who will listen. Oh, and jokes, lots of jokes.

What I like about MNW
The work done at MNW helps the world be a better place. Montessori is a pedagogy of change and peace. It helps me sleep at night.

A joke
What's another name for Santa's elves? Subordinate clauses.

A book (or book series)
The Hero with a Thousand Faces by Joseph Campbell.

Cats or dogs
Dogs.

A hobby
Calligraphy and hand-lettering, bookmaking, and cooking.

First job
I was a volunteer coordinator/operations assistant for a radio broadcast service for the visually impaired.
