I have been teaching preschool for 28 years, and I have helped to homeschool a few kids up to about 3rd grade. I also help my school-age childcare kids with their homework on a daily basis. I have been doing this long enough that now I am enjoying my first "grandchild", one of the kids that I raised in my school, who is now a beautiful adult woman, and is my Number one assistant in my business, has had a beautiful baby daughter who calls me "Gramma".
Hmmmm.....whatever works...but I think I tend to be a little bit "old school", I focus on the three r's, reading, 'riting and 'rithmetic...and I believe whole-heartedly in practice, perseverance and pride (in one's work) and PRAISE when it is deserved. I also believe that every child has their own individual learning style, and I like to think of several different creative ways to teach the same thing. I create and use worksheets, games, puzzles...
Yet to be added
I am an Associate Teacher, but I believe that the decades of practical experience I have enjoyed with my kids has taught me far more than my assorted college classes.
I own my own preschool/childcare. They call it a Large Family Home Childcare, because it is in my home, but I have a dedicated classroom and an (awesome) playground. I run my business like a school, with an added benefit of the family componant. I have raised many kids, and every one of them has a special place in my heart.
