Hi all, my name is Mike. I have been blessed to have been teaching kindergarten for almost a decade now. I have spent the last four years teaching TK (Transitional Kindergarten). I love all things kindergarten. I have had the opportunity to attend several kindergarten conferences and teaching many teacher trainings on curriculum and instruction strategies for TK and K. Most everything I will be selling on here are all things I have personally used in my classroom with my students.
Energetic! That would be me in a nutshell. I love technology and personally use my own tech and district provided tech in my classroom daily. But I never stray too far away from the tried and true engaging lessons and center activities that require thinking over input from tech. I want each one of my students to have a passion for learning and taking ownership of their learning as well. So in order to make that dream come true I try my very best to make every lesson, idea, or instance as fun and involving as possible.
Well I teach TK that is an award in itself. :)
Well it is pretty simple. I am a credentialed teacher in my district for almost 10 years. I am teacher/trainer of students and teachers alike. I am a techie nerd so I work with edtech and Microsoft on teach professional development symposiums around my district.
I am parent to 6 wonderful kids. Ages 17 to newborn. I feel at times that my house is just an extension of my own classroom and my kiddos at home are often times my guinea pigs for my lessons that I am creating for my students.
