TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching Head Start in the Pittsburgh area since 2012. I work with children ages 3-5. My classroom is filled with primarily low-income and ESL children. My goal is to prepare all of the children in our classroom for kindergarten.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is FUN! In the beginning of the year I spend a lot of time getting to know each child's family to find out more about their background. Forming a positive relationship with the families in the beginning of the year helps the children know that their families value education and they will enjoy coming to school even more. In my classroom, we are always adding dancing and singing into all subjects taught. I think dancing and singing makes the children more interested in literacy and mathematics. I always have a smile on my face in the classroom. When you are happy, the children are happy!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

In October of 2015 I won an "Unboxed" Teacher Award through Pittsburgh Leadership. I used the $2500 grant award to purchase a Makerbot 3D printer for my classroom. We use the 3D printer weekly to create drawings, structures, and a variety of other STEM activities. Having this type of technology encourages the children to think on a higher level. I am extremely lucky to have this available in the classroom. I had the opportunity to be a part of the Kindergarten Transition Panel at the 2014 PAEYC Conference in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I shared some of the transition activities I do in my classroom to transition our preschoolers onto kindergarten. Our classroom is located near one of the local elementary schools, so we are fortunate to be able to visit a kindergarten classroom throughout the year for "Kindergarten Buddies!" If you are not located close to an elementary school, try Skyping/FaceTiming or becoming Pen Pals with a kindergarten class. This eases a lot of nervous feelings about making the transition from Pre-K to Kindergarten. This will show the children that the "big kids" do many of the same activities daily as they do! I think one of the biggest challenges I had when I first started teaching was actually reaching out to the elementary school. I was new to the area and had so much going on already. After you send that first email or make that phone call, things will go smoothly from there. The first contact is the biggest step!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I grew up in a small town called Indiana, PA. I traveled to central Pennsylvania to attend Lock Haven University where I received my Bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education (Pre-K to 4th grade.)
