In 2008 I started Touch of Home Learning, a science based preschool educational entertainment company. We started out by being contracted by child care facilities to come in and do science based special events. As we grew we added some art programs to our science programs. Every event was completely customizable. In 2013 and again in 2015 I was the lead teacher 3 and 4 year old children. Many of the resources provided have been developed for the children at this center and my own children.
I embrace play based learning. We play lots of games and learning by doing. I design preschool lessons, activities, games and resources that utilize things you will have at home. We use the real world to learn real things. Because children all learn differently I like to offer many ways to learn the same concepts. Hands-On Centers, Flip and Find Games, File Folder Games and No Prep Printables.
The best thing that has ever happened to me while teaching is being remembered summer after summer.
I graduated from University of Wisconsin -- Stevens Point in 2000.
I am a wife and mother of 2. They give me great ideas and are willing test subjects for some of my crazy ideas. Some are hits and some are misses. 2016 my business added an interesting aspect, coloring books. Throughout 2017 and onward you will find them included in the store!
