I have been in the early childhood field for the past 8 years, and I currently teach preschool! Before that, I was a music teacher!
As an early childhood teacher with a background in music, I use creative elements, such as music & art, and dance, to teach core subjects and social skills. I believe play is an essential part of the early childhood experience!
Master of Arts in Teaching, University of Northern Colorado
Bachelor of Arts in Music, Virginia Tech
Computer Graphics & Internet Programming Certificate, Northern Virginia Community College
I've taught music, preschool, and kindergarten on the east coast and out west. I currently teach preK in Fort Collins, Colorado.
In my spare time I enjoy gardening, bird watching, and exploring the beautiful Colorado Rocky Mountains!
Store Name Change!
My store name is now Miss Vanessa. I wanted to change it because I switched from teaching kindergarten to preK. Some of my products may still show my previous store name, Kindergarten Nation. I am working on updating all products to reflect this change!
