I love teaching children about God's love for them! My materials are about content - not necessarily presentation. I don't take the time to make them "cutesy" :) I include what you and the kids need - nothing more (which means I can charge less!)

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Have worked with special needs prek children, taught and ran a Christian prek in Peru, taught in a public prek in the US, started a Church MMO program and am now in my 10th year as the Director of Children's Ministries! I have a B-K from Carolina (go Heels!) and a Masters in Christian Education.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I'm not big on worksheets or coloring sheets for prek, but rather hands on activities for every area of learning. In addition, I believe God can be taught and integrated into every area of learning - and I'm working on materials that do just that!! I also have a minor in music from UNC and try hard to use to music as a teaching tool as well! As I am now working in a church, the materials I am putting together are for Sunday school and/or VBS type activities.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

majored in Child Development and Family Studies at UNC-CH where I also got a minor in piano; MACE (Masters of Christian Education) from Union Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Charlotte.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

Have two children ages 9 and 11 that have taught me more than my years of experience could have ever taught me :) I am also fluent in Spanish and will try and post some Spanish activities for English speakers!
