I am a Designated Early Childhood Educator, which means that I am a co-Educator in a Kindergarten class. I work directly with my teaching partner to develop and deliver curriculum related tools for our JK/SK class.
I love color! I feel that children respond best to bright color and realistic images that they can relate to. I focus on hands-on activities and material that the children can manipulate, therefore my laminator gets quite a workout! I make use of our SmartBoard as an interactive learning too as much as possible and love to incorporate songs, dances and lots of "wiggle-breaks" for our students. I love to present my students with new and exciting activities that ensure they have fun as they learn. Learning through play is a large part of my programming.
I love it when my students have a "eureka" moment and grasp a concept they have been struggling with. There is nothing like the look in their eyes when they finally "get it"!

Teaching is a passion for me. Teachers Pay Teachers has presented me with so many valuable resources and I'd love the chance to give back! Living in Canada, many of my materials will reflect the Canadian calendar of holidays. Whenever possible, I will include American options as well.
