Ann lived in Singapore until the age of 12, when her family immigrated to the United States and she began her new life in Orinda, California. A few years after graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of California, Berkeley, Ann started a family. She raised and home-schooled four children, taught private flute lessons to elementary through high school students, and volunteered in preschool co-ops and early childhood programs in churches. When her eldest child started college, Ann returned to work managing staff in a veterinary hospital and then records management for a large corporation.
In 2016, Ann & her husband moved to Colorado, and she began working for Bright Horizons in Longmont as a Pre-Kindergarten teacher. In October 2018, Ann joined the Waldorf Early Childhood Program as an assistant teacher in Lavender Garden. She has enjoyed learning about the Waldorf method & philosophy of teaching, and will continue to provide guidance and love to these amazingly independent and imaginative young children. Ann also has a Pyramid Plus Approach Certificate from The Colorado Center for Social Emotional Competence & Inclusion. When not in school, Ann enjoys hiking, traveling, playing the flute, spending time with her husband and dog Koda, and finding a nice quiet place to read.
