TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I spent my first year teaching fifth grade. I almost lasted the entire year. As a result, I've spent the last several years teaching in a preschool and I can't imagine doing anything else. I've worked with children with disabilities, children in Head Start programs, and children learning English. Recently, I became trained to teach the Incredible Years program to other teachers. You can learn more about that here: http://incredibleyears.com

MY TEACHING STYLE

My philosophy is that we all learn through play. Young children especially love to explore and don't have any preconceptions about what they can't do. My lessons reflect this by providing open-ended materials and activities based largely on the children's interests (I do like to sneak in some of my own now and then). By encouraging children to interact with the materials on their own level, we can challenge them to think so that they'll be ready for kindergarten. Feel free to ask me to create anything except worksheets. If you're teaching preschool with worksheets, you're doing it wrong.
