I have over 19 years early childhood education experience. I have worked for three licensed child care corporations since 1996. I have held many positions including a teachers aid, a Lead teacher, an Educational Coordinator, an Assistant Director and a Center Director. My most recent experience in the education field was at USD 470 as a Learner Support for 5th grade and I had the pleasure of working in the technology department with 1st grade, 4th grade, and 5th grade. I own and operate a home daycare in Kansas. I offer a full curriculum based program. Children enrolled are in a preschool learning environment. I use theme based curriculum as the children enjoy learning about various holidays, seasons, animals, etc along with a letter of the week, number of the week, sight word of the week, phonics, and reading using BOB books. I also focus a lot on literacy and math, preparing children for Kindergarten. I plan to homeschool both my daughters.
My preschool teaching style is theme based with a focus on literacy and math. My homeschool teaching style is eclectic....a little of everything.
I received Honor Teacher in 2002
I hold a diploma in Child Care Specialty from Rasmussen College in Minnesota.
I am originally from California. I am married and have 5 children. My two youngest daughters attend my daycare center.
