Maddie grew up in Littleton, Colorado. She teaches in the 4s classroom Wednesday through Friday. This is her first experience teaching preschool, and she is very excited to be a part of the wonderful community at St. James. She is currently pursuing a degree in elementary education at ACC with an intent to transfer to Metro for her bachelors degree. Though very enthusiastic about this chosen path, she started her college career pursuing a degree in illustration, and loves all things art-related; in her free time she loves to create. One of her favorite parts of teaching is that she can blend lessons with this interest, which allows her a chance to explore new activities and projects everyday. Maddie is passionate about working with children, and loves watching their process of discovery and growth.
