I have been teaching young children for 38 wonderful years! To share my love of children and teaching, I presented seminars across America for more than a decade with SDR. I was also the keynote speaker at the I TEACH K conference in 2001 in Florida and CA.
I want EVERY young child in my room to feel valued and loved within a community of learners. Our activities are engaging, hands-on, and meaningful. The children in my room love coming to school and learning and laughing together.
