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!
Today we read The Night Before Valentine's Day by Natasha Wing. I read the book up to the last page and then stopped and had my students make predictions about what they thought was in the box that the principal gave the students. The students drew pictures and wrote about their predictions. Then we read the last page of the book to see what the principal really gave the students.
