Toddler, Preschool and Kindergarten Teacher School Age Head Teacher Independent Child Care and Early Learning Owner/Operator Homeschool
I utilize a hands-on approach to learning while embracing the use of technology to deepen student learning, but first and foremost, I believe in "Maslow before Bloom." In other words, I believe children of all ages and stages need their basic needs met before academic learning can be fully embraced. As a team teacher, I thoroughly enjoy learning alongside my colleagues and embody a strong community-oriented mindset to actively seek like-minded, goal-driven educators to build and maintain a strong, supportive network!
