I have one of the best jobs ever, as a preschool teacher. This journey of mine began 13 years ago, and I have been hooked ever since. My career has involved teaching and administrating in preschool and child care programs, and now I have the best of both worlds as I teach from my own home…and two of the sweethearts in my class are mine! My degree is in Early Childhood Education, and I have been able to help children worldwide while working with sponsorship programs in India (with World Vision) and Romania (with One Child Matters).
I live in Colorado with my beloved husband, daring and caring daughter (5) and puzzle loving son (4). We enjoy tickle wars, watching nature documentaries, going swimming, as well as spending time with the grandparents almost every weekend.
I believe that each child contains the key to his or her own learning. I simply follow their lead and scaffold their learning in the process. My passion is to teach play-based methods and to remain true to the child.
Here are some of my posts if you’re interested in learning more about me and my teaching philosophy.
