TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've had the privilege of teaching all grades K through 6 throughout my five years of post-secondary education. I have taught grade one for three years and have since chosen to fuel my passion for learning and play in the early years. I hope to share this passion with you and your littles through carefully curated play and learning ideas, meaningful activities, and intentional resources.
