My love for Cabin John/Brookmont Children’s Program started the day my daughter Katherine entered the nursery school.  With a newborn brother at home, and my maternity leave just beginning, she was introduced to a whole new world of preschoolers and teachers.  The excitement that she brought home each day from her explorations and activities made me appreciate even more the loving environment in which she was comfortable, nurtured and allowed to grow.  As she entered kindergarten, and my son Robert entered the program, I decided to change careers to more closely match my family’s needs, and I have continued teaching here for the past 24 years. I am grateful that I am still able to experience that excitement through the eyes of other preschoolers, many of whom are my neighbors in Brookmont, on a daily basis.
