I have been in childcare for going on 5 years now. I took my first teaching job not really knowing if I would like it or not. I had just graduated from college with a b.s in psychology and did not know what to do with it. All i knew is 1) I needed a job to pay my rent and 2) kids were always fun and interesting to me. So after nterviewing with a private daycare i was offered the job in a four year old classroom. After my first year teaching I felt like I had my ahh-ha moment. I became a teaching assistant in a state funded pre-k classroom and loved watching the children grow and learn. I also like the challenge of trying to help and educate each individual child in their own unique way of learning. After 4 years of being an assistant I went back to school to get my birth-elementary ed. teaching license.
Every year, every month, and everyday i learn something different. Weather it be how to manage my classroom more efficiently or how to teach in a different way to help a child understand. I believe that as a teacher I am there at the school to help create a positive, safe, learning environment. I want my children to look forward to coming to school and I want them to feel safe and loved. Working with at-risk children has really taught me a lot about myself and about the world around me. I believe that each child is unique and needs different things from me. All though I am not super woman and know that sometimes I will not accommodate every need for every child I try my hardest to start a child's educational career in a positive, exciting, and encouraging direction.

I am a nerd at heart. I enjoy watching movies from my childhood and new Disney movies. I love being outside and recently have started geocaching. If you don't know what Geocaching is you should look it up, its like a real life scavenger/treasure hunt. I have an Etsy store called "Nerd Alert Shop" where I sell my handmade art work and creations. etsy.com/shop/nerdalertshop . When I am not busy crafting or searching for geocaches I like to play guitar.
