I believe our life wanderings help to prepare us for our vocation. After college I wandered on my way to graduate school. I taught in elementary and high school settings with children who had special education needs. While working on my master’s degree in School Psychology, I found my niche working with very young children and their families. While working in Early Intervention, I worked closely with young children who had significant behavioral challenges. This led me to further my education at the University of Oregon. There I studied the concurrent validity of the Ages & Stages Questionnaires®: Social-Emotional (ASQ:SE). The ASQ:SE is used nationally and internationally to help guide understanding of young children’s social and emotional development. Now I teach Early Childhood Education courses and supervise a work crew at Verner Center for Early Learning. I love being at Warren Wilson, but — honestly — if I had known I could have gone to school to learn how to run a children’s museum, I would not be here right now!
