I am a credentialed Reading Specialist with over 30 years of experience in the Primary classroom. After years of developing my own curriculum, my peers urged me to present this material at the California Kindergarten Conference, which generated an overwhelming response to publish my program. I have since grown this basic curriculum into the 'HeidiSongs' product line and website, which now includes both music and videos, plus presentations and keynotes nationwide.
I love to teach through music and movement! Anything that is active, fun, and hands-on is what I focus on. See my website, www.HeidiSongs.com for a great selection of the music and videos that I have created, each with fun and simple movement to reinforce each lesson. You can see samples on YouTube or iTunes, or join our streaming site for a FREE 30-day trial! There you'll find my entire 750 song catalog, plus music and videos from some of the best music creators! Visit https://heidisongs.uscreen.io/ for more details.
Most of my songs and music videos have won Parent Choice, and Academic's Choice awards, plus several awards from the Creative Child Magazine. I am also a Bravo Award Nominee and a Teacher of the Year Award Recipient at my school and district.
I have a teaching credential from California State University, Fullerton. My Bachelor's Degree is also from there and is in Spanish Linguistics. I also got my Master's Degree there in Education with an emphasis in Reading Instruction. I have a Reading Specialist Credential.
I have written twenty-two instructional music CD's and video DVD's, plus three musical plays for children! These were all created for young children, and were piloted in my own Kindergarten classroom in Southern CA. I have also written eight picture books: The Opposites Rhyming Book, Holiday Traditions Around the World, The 1-100 Book, The Gingerbread Man, Wiggles Learns the Rules at School, Wiggle's First Day at School, Wiggles Learns to Pay Attention, and Alphabet Action.
