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.
Be sure to check out A Place Called Kindergarten's The After Christmas Tree read aloud and activity. I love the idea of making pine cone bird feeders. Another great book Jonelle turned me onto is Stranger in the Woods. The pictures in the book are great!
