I am entering my ninth year as an educator. I started in Pre-Kindergarten, graduated to fourth grade where I spent a great 5 years, and am currently in my third year as a kindergarten teacher. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the elementary school that I teach in. The staff and students there quickly became my family, and I hope to spend all of my teaching years at my school.
I am a lover of learning, and one of my favorite things to do is sit down and think of creative and engaging activities for my kinders. I believe they need to interact with each other as much as possible, lots of hands-on learning, and I do my best to instill a love of the written word in my students. I am looking forward to continuing to grow and learn something new every day!
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary and Early Childhood Education from Catawba College, and am currently working towards my Master's in Education degree from McDaniel College.
I hope to be able to help other educators meet the needs in their classroom with the use of the materials I make! Come follow my blog, Kindergarten Dragons, at kinderdragons.blogspot.com!!
