I taught full-day kindergarten for 14 years and have spent the last 2 years as a kindergarten and first grade strategist working all over my district. I am excited to say that this school year I will be back in my own kindergarten classroom!! While I loved working with kinder and first grade teachers and their students, I missed having a class of my own.
I graduated from Dallas Baptist University in 2008 with a masters in curriculum and instruction. I am currently working on my doctorate in early childhood studies with a minor in curriculum and instruction at the University of North Texas. I hope to one day teach at the university level. I love what I do and want to pass on all that I have learned over the years to fellow teachers and students!
My night with Laura Numeroff was so much fun!! I really enjoyed listening to her talk about growing up, her interests, and her books. She was very funny!! She mentioned the next book in the "If You Give a series...." Looks like its brownies in the near future. I even got to have a little blogging conversation with her!! :)
