I am a believer in the magic of Kindergarten! There is no other place I would rather spend a day than surrounded by the sounds of emergent readers and writers. I have been teaching for 17 years and hold a Masters in Reading and Literacy. I am an accomplished and award-winning playwright, screen writer and Children's author and adaptor. You can read more about my work at www.wysteriaedwards.com, and www.YouthPlays.com. My latest children's book entitled, Bethany Bubbles Makes a Mistake can also be purchased on Amazon.com.
Dramatic, fun, Whole brain, Cooperative. I am always looking for new ways to teach my Kindergarteners. I'm a collector of Wizard of Oz and use the magic of the timeless tale to surround my students with possibilities and lessons.
