I have been in the field of early childhood education since 1994, and I currently teach kindergarten in the state of Washington. I have worked in public and private elementary school settings, Head Start, college/university laboratory schools, and private preschools throughout the Pacific Northwest. I also spent four (plus) years working with adults in the Cincinnati area and loved that dynamic, as well. I really enjoy working with people of all ages. :)
I am a very creative and energetic teacher! I love creating fun and engaging curriculum items for my classroom. One of my classroom superpowers is hosting meaningful, empowering whole group instruction.
Yet to be added
I hold degrees in early childhood education, human development, and an M.A. in teaching with early childhood and elementary endorsements. I am currently working to earn a reading specialist endorsement.
