I have 8 years of experience in working as an Early Childhood (3-6 year olds) Montessori teacher. The classroom is a happy joyful space where something new and unpredictable happens everyday!
As a Montessorian, I believe in placing an emphasis on the child's independence; guiding him toward independent problem solving while maintaining a balance of community awareness and caring for others. My lesson plans do require some occasional prep because I believe it is important for the children to have hands on experiences. They are written for Montessori mixed age classrooms, but can be adjusted to meet your classrooms needs. The materials I make are simple so as not to detract from the purpose.

I studied multimedia and web design before realizing that my heart was in early childhood education.
I am a Texas girl living in California so some of my materials have some Texas flavor.
