I taught Kindergarten for six years after being a Reading Specialist and First Grade teacher for two years. I enjoy helping other teachers free up their time by writing lesson plans that are cut and paste-able. I hope my documents help you and shorten your "work from home" time!
Be fun and creative so you keep the kids engaged and incorporate as many styles of learning as possible at all times. Also (and remember I work with the littles) allow and even make opportunities for movement!
My class got a ribbon from the PE teacher for working well as a team- does that count? ;) Oh and I also received the highest parent satisfaction scores in my district.
Bachelor's Degree in Liberal Studies with an emphasis in Human Development Lots and lots of Professional Development classes, including a conference to hear from the great Harry Wong!
My lesson planning abilities go beyond the classroom. I also helped write lesson plans to acquire a Charter School License in my District.
