I have been a teacher in a Title 1 school for 5 years, and have fallen in love with kindergarten. Happy kids make my days go faster, our brains grow bigger and our hearts grow fonder!
More like a coach, I teach to up the rigor, push kids to new levels, and help them learn that self critique, adjustments, trying and doing more than we think we are capable of is not only a life long marathon, it's essential to our development and success.
My students call me the "Best Teacher Ever" So that means I'm a really big deal.
Masters from Willamette University in Salem Oregon BA from the College of Idaho in Caldwell Idaho, with two majors and four minors.
I love kindergarten because every day is something to celebrate. I'm always happy because with so many accomplishments each day in kinder, who couldn't be? Our classroom is full of laughter, and I wouldn't have it any other way.
