TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Hello! My name is Lyndsey Kuster. I am an experienced first grade teacher residing in the beautiful mountains of Asheville, North Carolina. I am passionate about collaborating with teachers from all around the world and creating meaningful and visually appealing resources that meet the needs of all learners. My goal is to share teacher-tested, kid-approved tips, strategies, and materials that will help save you time and inspire you in your own classroom.

MY TEACHING STYLE

1. Think like a kid. No matter what I am trying to get my students to achieve, I ALWAYS start here. 2. Allow children to experience passionate lessons. Ignite that fire inside! 3. Create a warm, family atmosphere where students feel loved and valued.
