Beth joined the Little Acorn Christian Preschool staff in March 2015 as the Assistant Director and transitioned into the Director role a few months later. She is a firm believer in the play-based philosophy and has been fortunate to study reflective teaching and the philosophy of Reggio-Emilia.
Beth earned a BA in Animal Science and Agricultural Business from Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, CA. She later returned to school to study Early Childhood Education at Foothill College and received her Site Supervisors Permit through the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing. Beth has always loved working with children and families and has over 15 years of experience. In addition to her work with preschool learners, Beth also has a background with special needs children, as well as many years teaching swimming.
Beth, her husband and 2-year-old live in East Palo Alto with two dogs and a flock of chickens. She was raised in the Bay Area and is lucky to have most of her family close by. Beth enjoys hobbies including exercise and running, scrapbooking, gardening and being outdoors.
