I have been teaching since 1991. I have taught Kindergarten for 19 years, and was a Computer teacher in both Elementary schools and Teacher Training Centers for 3 years, both part-time and full-time. I currently work with Administration as "Student Curriculum Support" for Pre-K, Kdg and 1st at my school. I set up trainings, support the classroom teachers with curriculum, supplies, lessons and work closely with new teachers at the school to get them comfortable with procedures and standards.
I like getting the children up and moving, keeping them involved and excited. Games that support learning are the best way for children to learn! I used Kagan structures in my classroom, and lots of partner/team work for activities. The more variety you can offer, the more engaged the children will be.
Yet to be added
I have my bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education and Psychology.
I was on the design team for my County Math Common Core Curriculum. I was also the Math Teacher Leader for my school to lead the implementation of the Common Core State Standards with my team.
