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.
Awhile ago, I made a "Back to School Ideas" post. Someone emailed and asked for the page for the Chrysanthemum lesson. The idea actually came from Brooke Perry, but I recreated the sheet to send so I thought I would share it.
