I have been a teacher for 15 years and have taught 5th, 4th, 2nd, and now Kindergarten. All of the grades have had their strengths and challenges, but Kindergarten is by far my favorite! I have also taught a few courses at the University level. My dream is to one day teach at the University level full time.
I have been called "old school" when it comes to classroom management, but I am truly a "hands-on" kind of teacher. I believe that students learn and remember best when they can "do" rather than just listen.
I have received 3 grants: McDonald's Grant for teaching hands-on science, a Martha Holden Jennings Grant for integrating picture books in the reading curriculum, and a University Action Grant for teaching science with a hands-on approach.
I have a B.A. in Elementary Education with a concentration in science and a minor in music. I have a M.ED in classroom teaching.
I have been married to a great husband for 13 years and we have 4 year old twin girls. I love being a mom first and a teacher second. My decision in becoming a seller was to provide kindergarten teachers with sight word books that students can easily read in order to learn their sight words and feel like a reader. The money I earn will be used for my many sewing projects I love to make for my own daughters as well as purchasing more resources for my classroom.
