I have been a full day kindergarten teacher for 16 years. Before that, I was a self-contained K-1 teacher for 3 years.
I teach to reach each of my students in the way that they need to learn!
Nothing formal. Admiration from parents and students who return year after year are worth more than a paper award or trophy!
BA in Art Therapy and minor in Special Education MS in Ed. 75 credit hours from various universities to further my education
I am a happily married mom of 2 energetic boys- ages 8 and 7! I blog over at Crayons and Cuties In Kindergarten!
