She started substitute teaching at Meadow Brook Baptist Preschool at the beginning of the year in 2017, when her twins were in kindergarten, and loved it so much that she immediately took a job as a floating aide in the three year olds classes. At the beginning of 2018, she began teaching in the two year olds class when the opportunity arose. Meadow Brook Baptist is like a second home for her, not just a job. She loves the kids, parents and the staff more than she ever imagined that she could!
