I co-founded of The Children’s Workshop School in 1993 along with current CWS teacher Jean Finnerty. I am dedicated to providing an enriching, inspiring, and holistic education for every child. I am committed to equity and access for all, and invite students and their adults to speak with me about anything. 

In 2011, the New York Times profiled me in their Principal’s Office series. The article is available here

I am the liaison between parents and the school administration, staff members, and teachers. You can find me in the Main Office on the 2nd floor or the Library on the 4th floor. I am always available to talk to parents about any concerns, questions or suggestions they may have. I sit on several committees, including the Playground Stewardship Committee, the Technology Committee and the Grant Writing Committee. I will be sending out important emails to keep you updated on school information, updating the calendar and the school website.
