Dear friends and families,
Linda Reimond has dedicated 35 years to creating, building and growing the early childhood education department, and her retirement is right around the corner. I feel so fortunate to have had such a mentor for the last 10 years. I have been soaking up Linda’s magic, and sprinkling in my own pixie dust along with way. In August I will be stepping into the role of Interim Director of Early Childhood Education. I am so very excited and honored to guide our amazing team and continue teaching, playing, creating and honoring childhood at the Lawrence Arts Center.
As the Interim Director, I thought it would be fun to do an old fashioned Q & A – early childhood style of course. These are actual questions I have been asked, and the answers I have given, while teaching at the Lawrence Arts Center.
- What is your favorite dinosaur?
My favorite dinosaur is a Brontosaurus – I love its really long neck.
- Do you have kids?
I do! I have two boys, Sean and Conor. Sean is 19 and Conor is 17.
- What do unicorns eat?
Pancakes with rainbow sprinkles of course!
- What is your favorite color?
My favorite color is turquoise, but I love rainbow just as much.
- Do you sleep at the Arts Center?
I don’t, I sleep at home with my family and pets.
- Do you have any pets?
We do. We have a girl yellow dog and a boy black and white cat.
- Have you ever eaten a bug?
I don’t know – maybe by accident.
- What is your favorite animal?
This is hard because I love all kinds of animals. Flamingos, sloths (I’ve touched a sloth. They aren’t very soft.), dolphins, sea turtles (I once watched newly hatched Kemp Ridley turtles make their way safely into the sea.), and meerkats. I really like animals.
- What kind of whipped cream do you want on your sand pie?
The spoon kind or the “pppsssccchhhhh” kind? Always the “pppsssccchhhhh” kind!
- Why are you my teacher?
I am your teacher because I love playing with you and my favorite part is watching you learn new things.
I am looking forward to this new adventure and can’t wait to see you all soon!
