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!)

I developed this general outline for my 3-hour preschool Mother's Morning Out group. Although we're a MMO program, we still operate like a preschool. The lesson plan is general, but specific enough to help me know how to set up and what I'm doing

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.

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!
