As a teacher in the Toddler Room, Ginger works to nurture an open dialogue with families and to build a community in the classroom so that everyone feels safe and ready to learn. Watching tiny children grow and develop relationships and a vocabulary so they can express themselves is as rewarding as it is educational to her; she is passionate about building a strong foundation to support a child's overall future development in cognition, social and emotional skills, as well as physical and behavioral growth.
Ginger earned her Bachelor's Degree in Deaf Education, Birth to Grade 12 from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. After college, she taught in Durham Public Schools in North Carolina for two years at an auditory-oral site-based program within an elementary school and as an itinerant teacher. She moved to Arizona in the fall of 2009 and joined the Desert Voices team in the preschool program where she taught for five years. Just after becoming a mother herself, she made the move to the Toddler Room in 2014.
She and her husband, Michael, live in Phoenix with their daughter, Penelope. When Ginger is not doing "school", she enjoys spending time with her family, friends, and church community here and in North Carolina. She also loves reading children's books, being outdoors, decorating her home, and escaping for a day trip/adventure.
