I have been in education related positions for 17 years. Some of the educational work was with public preschool and special needs students with mild to multiple disabilities. I have also worked as an administrator of a private nature based preschool. I have worked in consultation as an Early Childhood Mental Health Consultant helping teachers with social emotional and Trauma informed practices in the classroom.
I have found that when children have the opportunity to discover, problem solve, and be those little detectives, learning becomes highly motivating. Teaching in a hands on way with engaging materials helps children learn best. I believe in using a Project-based approach to help children develop their problem solving and initiative. I enjoy STEM projects, teaching with engaging writing prompts, and allowing children to be their own learners by choosing nonfiction writing books within their level for research and writing. I believe discovery is where learning comes alive for teachers and children!
