Angela lived in Upstate New York for more than twenty years and then moved to California where she taught preschool for five years at Play Mountain Place, a humanistic school founded in 1949. She completed her graduate work in psychology and education at the University of California, Riverside.
Her research focuses on emotion, culture, and race in preschool. She credits her third grade teacher, Mrs. Carol Anne Smith, for inspiring her to pursue a career committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion in early childhood education.
Angela is excited to be here in beautiful Vermont where she can practice relationship-based teaching and revel in all four seasons.
