TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 17 years. The last 12 years have been in kindergarten and I love it-it's in my bones! My number one goal is to keep my students engaged so they learn. I strive to create activities that are engaging and meaningful yet need little prep. I have three young daughters so time is always limited. :)
