I taught 5 years of bilingual kindergarten (Spanish & English) and am now a stay-at-home mom. I have also taught Title I Math & Reading, fifth grade, and worked in child care with ages preschool through sixth grade. While I enjoy learning with kids of all ages, my heart is in kinder! I love their tender spirits, their passionate hearts, and their innocent excitement about life. They aren't yet jaded about school or about life, and they really, truly are the fastest person(s) in the world when they wear their Sketchers!
My goal as a teacher of young children is to empower them to feel successful at school and teach them to love learning! So much of what we do in kinder is a "game," a "surprise," a "magic trick," or a "present" because they LOVE games, surprises, magic tricks, and presents! "Close your eyes, I have a surprise for you. Now.... open! NEW HOMEWORK!" *spontaneous applause and cheering*
