I taught kindergarten for 16 years and was a district k-1 strategist for 2. I have a masters degree in curriculum and instruction from Dallas Baptist and a doctorate in early childhood studies with a minor in curriculum and instruction from the University of North Texas. I am currently working for Dallas ISD as a prek instructional specialist.
Check out Deanna Jump's store at Teachers Pay Teachers and you can download her 50th Day of School unit and her class book We Are Scientists for free and while you are there.... you should purchase her NEW owl unit and her Word Detective Word Work unit. The word work unit is great for literacy stations or use with the Daily 5.
