I have been teaching Kindergarten for 3 years and taught preschool for 3 years before getting my degree.
My teaching style can be summed up with this poem. "Teaching Your Child Through Play" I tried to teach my child with books. He gave me only puzzled looks. I tried to teach my child with words. They passed him by often unheard. Despairingly, I turned aside. "How shall I teach this child?" I cried. Into my hand he put the key "Come," he said, "play with me."
