Inspiration: When my husband and I were looking for a preschool for our first child, I toured The Summit. I knew immediately it was a special place. The students, the community and the faculty are warm and welcoming. It is a happy place and made me want to be at the school more. Watching my children enjoy learning and become responsible and self-confident young people through The Summit is a wonderful experience. The expression on the face of a child when he discovers something for the first time and being a part of that moment is inspirational.

Philosophy: I believe children should have fun while they learn. This will develop a lifelong love of learning. Keeping children safe and happy while learning confidence and independence in the classroom is important. 

Personal: Husband, Ted and three children at The Summit, Teddy, Maddie and Johnny.
