Hi, I'm Miss Dorothy!

Tell us a little bit about yourself. I was a nurse, but after an injury, I began volunteering in my son's preschool and I have never looked back. I took a huge pay cut to switch from nursing to education, but every minute that I spend learning with children is worth it.

What is your philosophy on and approach to behavioral management? There is a reason for all behavior and positive guidance can help children to learn how to self regulate and make great choices on a long-term basis.

Who was your favorite teacher and why? My high school French teacher was terrific. She was quirky and allowed us to do odd assignments and it was a joy to attend her class.

Do you have experience working with children with special needs?  Yes, because I was a nurse, I have a lot of hands on experience working with children with profound medical issues. I also work with inclusion so I get to work with emotional and behavorial issues.
