16 years in the Early Childhood Education field - 4 of those as a school administrator and program specialist in private schools. I am now on my eighth year in the public school setting, which I love!
Learning through play is what we do! My PreK classroom is set up in learning centers which is the substancial portion of our day. Our learning centers available are: science and exploration, math and manipulatives, building blocks, library and quiet area, writing center, computers and technology, and dramatic play which I change on a monthly basis based on the theme we are studying and the students' interest and season.
In 2007 I earned the PRIDE AWARD which is an award given to the teacher of the year. I have also earned several blogger awards. Check out my multiple award-winning blog for more information! http://www.prekpartner.com
I spent my primary years in public school, moving into private Catholic school for middle and high school. Once in college I started out in Accounting....which I quickly changed! Years later I successfully completed a double BA in Management and Social Studies, two years later I earned my Masters degree in Early Childhood Education. I am very close to achieve my second Masters degree and credential program with multiple subject credential. My ultimate goal is to teach Transitional Kindergarten!
