I love teaching lower elementary. I have experience teaching kindergarten, first, second, and third grade, which has given me a solid foundation and great perspective when it comes to creating curriculum resources. My journey as an educator started back in 2000 in a preschool, which helped me to decide to move on with my degree in elementary education. I have both a master's and bachelor's degree in elementary education.
I hold a strong hands-on philosophy and love to find new ways to make it engaging and fun. The most effective teaching is relevant. What is more relevant to the word of a child than play? One wise professor said, if somehow you can call it a game, you will have them engaged and learning. I am always looking for ways to make learning relevant to the world of young children by upping the degree of fun while still meeting very high educational standards.
Bachelor's Degree in elementary education 2005 Master's Degree in elementary education 2011
While teaching, I dreamt of creating curriculum as a job.Thanks to TPT, I now have the opportunity to live out my dreams.
