Tell the Partnership Learning Community a little bit about yourself - what are your interests? What community activities or organizations are you involved in? Right now, I'm exploring ways to transform my life as an early childhood teacher educator, parent, and grandmother into ways that are generative by being more intentional and reflective. That said, I enjoy the opportunities I have to work with early childhood teachers and colleagues in South Africa and Sierra Leone as well as at home in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. I balance that with helping my colleagues at my institution make connections to serve our amazingly diverse community. Of course, what keeps me grounded and focused is life with a growing family who are pretty amazing folks.
