Brief Biographical Sketch:

I graduated from Wellesley College in June with a BA in Classical Civilizations. I'm currently working as an infant and toddler teacher at a childcare center in the greater Boston area. When I'm not at work, I spend my time reading, knitting, baking, solving sudoku puzzles and trying to figure out how to be a Real Adult! I'm originally from central Maine, where I lived with my parents, nine siblings and two cats.

I taught my first class for Splash! in 2007, and I'm glad to be back!
