TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have more than 30 years experience teaching preschool and kindergarten. I have a degree in education, and a Master's Degree in early childhood science.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe in hands-on learning opportunities for children. The printables that I create are supplements to the "real" learning that happens primarily during play. Children need lots of opportunities for dramatic play, outdoor play, constructive play and sensory play. I am especially interested in inquiry based learning and hands-on exploration.
