My first year in the classroom was spent as a preschool special needs aide. I was lucky enough to move on with my first class, the following year, as their kindergarten teacher! I have taught kindergarten ever since and have not looked back! This is my sixth year of teaching kindergarten.
My teaching approach is hands-on, inquiry based and guided by student interest, motivation, and individual learning styles....alll while differentiating instruction based on Common Core State Standards of course :).
National Board Certified Teacher: Early Childhood Generalist Teacher of the Year at the District Level
Masters Degree in Curriculum and Instruction
With the help of the great educator's on Teachers Pay Teachers, implementing the Common Core State Standards in my classroom this year has been a success! I can only hope to give back :). Come by and check out my blog at: http://connectingthedotskinder.blogspot.com/
