Chris’s Bio

I'm 52, live in Lorton, and am the mother of three children--ds25, ds23; and dd15. We have lived here for 13 years.
I have my BS ED from Ohio State U, and over 20 years of teaching experience, including 5 years of homeschooling. I currently teach preschool at St. Christopher's in Springfield. My "style" is somewhat laid-back, and I consider myself a positive, gentle and process-oriented person. I'm not Type A, in other words, and I allow kids to be kids. That said, structure and organization are helpful tools, and clear expectations and guidelines provide children with a sense of safety--when they know what to expect, I believe they relax and enjoy themselves! My teaching was highly influenced by Montessori and NAEYC principles--I love to encourage children to explore and experiment. I give lots of hugs, but respect personal space. Someone once described me as a person "with an enormous capacity for joy;" I like that. I am a Christian, and that informs my worldview, but I let my life preach, not necessarily my words, and I respect others' beliefs.
I am CPR, First Aid and MAT certified.
I would love to get to know you and your child!
