TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Tara West is a curriculum author and kindergarten teacher. Her curriculum first began when she realized that her students were missing many components when only being exposed to big box curriculum. She spent countless hours pouring over research with regards to various types of curriculum methodologies and teaching methods which she felt would be applicable to her students’ diverse learning needs. Mrs. West then implemented that research into her classroom. When she noticed that the results were surpassing previous years’ performance, her principal allowed her and the rest of her teaching team to utilize the curriculum that she had created. The results were phenomenal and from there Tara continued to take these classroom-tested ideas and methods to the next level by creating her KinderCurriculum and FirstieCurriculum. She continues to research best practices as well as new and innovative methods which she tests in the classroom and translates it into new curriculum. Mrs. West has received feedback from thousands of classroom teachers from around the globe to help validate student performance and teacher buy in.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is that of balanced literacy, techonology, hands-on, and all the while following district curriculum!
