I have been a teacher for 17 years. I spent a year teaching 5th grade, two years in second grade, and then was moved to kindergarten. I have been teaching kindergarten ever since! In 2015 I was named Teacher Of The Year by my peers at my school. I am a national speaker/presenter and curriculum developer as well as a popular teacher blogger.
I guide by the side providing the scaffolding for my students to succeed.
