I am very excited to be leading the pre-k enrichment classes for MSMD at various locations throughout WNY. I have been involved in education for over 10 years and have worked with children from ages 2-10. I love to see the excitement and inspiration a story can bring to a child’s life. I look forward to taking your child on an adventure through literacy!
