Kaitlin began teaching at BPC Preschool in 2018 and is very happy to have stepped foot into an amazing community. She came to us with a bachelor’s degree in early childhood education from The University of Scranton, a master’s degree in curriculum and instruction from Seton Hall University, and a reading specialist certificate from George Mason University. She began her teaching career in Jersey City, NJ teaching kindergarten and Pre-K before moving to Virginia. She also taught kindergarten and 1st grade in Fairfax County, Virginia for several years.

Kaitlin is married to her college sweetheart, and together they have two children, a son and a daughter. She loves to read and craft and has been a Girl Scout since the age of five. She continues Girl Scouts today as a leader for her daughter.

Kaitlin loves the innocence of children and how everything is new and exciting for them. She says children force you to slow down and be present. Her favorite children’s books are the Pout Pout Fish series and anything by Mo Willems.
