Hartley Preschool
Co-lead Teacher, M/W PM

I grew up in central Wisconsin and spent countless hours adventuring outside with my family. I went on to receive my Elementary Education degree from Northern Michigan University, where my now husband and I fell in love with Lake Superior. We spent a few years traveling and teaching abroad in Bangladesh and Ecuador and then decided to settle back in the Midwest. Duluth felt like the perfect blend of all the things we were looking for, particularly in terms of all it had to offer for amazing trails, parks, the lake and other outdoor space. I’ve spent the last few years home with my three littles exploring all Duluth has to offer and have developed such a love and passion for being outside with kids and outdoor education in general. Nature preschool is such an awesome culmination of so many good things and I can’t wait to be a part of this team and explore with all the kiddos!
