I've been working with Pre-Kindergarten children for the past nine years and love every minute of it. I've also taught Middle School Technology and Upper School Keyboarding classes, but now I am full-time Pre-K.
Encourage, encourage, encourage. Be consistent with your expectations from the beginning of the year until the end. Praise even the smallest effort in order for them to get the confidence to even go further. Small groups are the key to everyone's success! Teach choices and consequences in behavior management and role play to enlighten the child in a better way to solve a problem.

In my other spare time... lol... I draw people portraits in graphite and charcoal. I also draw pet portraits in soft pastels. You can view some of my work here: My Artwork
