Fun, Patient Ex-teacher With Over 20 Years Experience!
After having been a preschool teacher, I am looking for an opportunity teaching for a private family. I love working with children and I have experience leading art and music classes as well as individual tutoring. During my years in college student teaching, I worked with special needs students and have referrals from families who have utilized my service to help with their autistic children. I have been CPR and first aid certified, I am a strong swimmer and feel comfortable assisting kids in the pool.
I believe children work best through hands on learning, I am a "messy teacher," (Do not worry, we clean up!) which means I incorporate a lot of sensory activities into my lessons; paint, sand, flour, dirt, and flowers are all usually found where we are working.
I believe music is not given nearly enough emphasis in schools and try to incorporate music and dance wherever possible.
I teach the Golden Rule, kindness, acceptance, wonder, and embracing mistakes as learning experiences.
