Between the two of us, we have experience teaching kindergarten through fourth grade, assistant principal (elementary), principal (middle school) and curriculum director (K-12). (Confession, all those higher-up gigs belong to my mom. I handle the early childhood/elementary territory.)
My mom and I believe in offering activities that challenge all learners and stimulate creativity!
Me: Teacher of the Year and DisneyHand Award nominee Mom: too many to list! :-)
Mama: B.S. Elementary Education, M.Ed. Educational Administration Me: B.S. Interdisciplinary Studies (Elementary Education/Early Childhood), M.Ed. Curriculum and Instruction (Literacy Studies)
I have a Gifted and Talented endorsement and am also certified in ESL. During the summer, I run my own Reading Camp for students entering first and second grade and speak at state-wide conferences (TEPSA). You can also follow my professional learning network on Twitter at nsmithk4.
