I have taught kindergarten for thirteen years.
I use lots of technology, music, movement, and books to engage students in academic content.

I love to use technology to help students LEARN!!. Many of my files will be PowerPoints that can be used in any primary grade classroom to engage students in content and build their automaticity with basic knowledge and skills!! I will also be adding lots of ready-to-print, ready-to-use activities that are fun, engaging, and aligned with standards. These materials will help your students leave kindergarten saying, "Everything I Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten (and I had fun doing it)!!"
