My Primary Roles at Northside:
Most Memorable Moment at Northside:
They happen daily walking through the halls of preschool when I chat with kids about what’s on their minds (boo boos, shoes, babies, backpacks, art, where I live- which is not the studio)
Favorite Job Perk:
Getting messy with kids!
Between You And Me (Hardly Anyone Knows That):
I have two middle names Fionnuala Ursula Quilligan Ross (say that 5 times fast)
What I Wanted To Be When I Grew Up (At Age 10):
Veterinarian and Artist
What I Want To Be When I Grow Up (Now):
A thoughtful human
When Not In The Classroom I Can Be Found:
Wrangling two kiddos while wishing I had another set of arms, but loving almost all of it.
Favorite Place In The World:
The kitchen in my granny’s house in Dublin, cooking toast on her Aga cooker.
Favorite Place In My Imagination:
A freshly made bed, with the NYT Sunday edition, and a coffee on the nightstand.
My Desert Island EDC (The handful of things you cannot live without):
My family, chapstick, a knitting project, coffee and wine.
I Knew I Wanted To Work At Northside When…
I realized there was a magical place, an art studio in a preschool where I could spend my days creating with enthusiastic children!
Secret Dream Job:
A crew-member for any David Attenborough documentary.
Anything by Oliver Sacks or Haruki Murakami
