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.
Debbie Clement from Rainbows Within Reach recently asked me to do a guest post on another blog she contributes to PreK + K Sharing. In trying to stay in line with the other posts on the blog, I decided to write about teaching young children to draw and why it is so important. To learn more about how I taught my students to draw and to find out how it connected over to their writing, check out my guest post Teaching Children to Draw.
