I taught first grade for 5 years before deciding to switch to part time to spend more time with my kids. I now teach preschool for a private Christian Preschool and teach my own preschooler at home. I student taught in Kindergarten. I create all of my own curriculum and I am the founder and operator of Edlah Preschool Resources at edlah.com.
I like to have fun and connect my fun activities to the skills my kids are learning. Sometimes I do have my kids doing paper and pencil activities because I believe they need to know how. However, I try to make as many things as possible hands on learning experiences. We like to have fun!
My notebooks full of notes from my students are my favorite honors.
I graduated from MidAmerica Nazarene University in Olathe KS with a Bachelors in Elementary Education and took some technology in education classes with Baker University in Baldwin KS.
I spend my days teaching preschool in the morning and playing with and teaching my own kids in the afternoons. In the summers I work a day came for school aged kids (3 field trips a week keeps me busy). I have a two wonderful kids and an amazing husband. We are very active in our church and love to spend time eating new types of foods and playing games with our friends and family. In my free time I work on my website edlah.com. (Check it out!)
