I am an experienced licensed teacher. I have been teaching for 30 years in all subject areas. I am gentle, but disciplined. I truly care about my students and their well being. I am nurturing and I want to see my students succeed. My mission is to: educate and inspire students to strive to be the best they can be. spread a smile and make a change in their little corner of the world. have students be bold in all things. have students ask for help if needed. My goals are to: have strong classroom management. make every learner feel at ease, respected, and wanted as I welcome students into my class. take a real interest in what your child thinks and says. have a successful class meeting your child enjoys, have a class that holds your child's attention, and stays engaged. Why do I teach? I teach because I am a teacher. It is who I am. It is what I do. I love teaching! I want to reach little ones and have them succeed as they venture through their educational journey. What do I care about? I care about the child as a whole; their interests, their stories, their family. I care if they succeed. I aim to make lessons engaging so that "failure is not an option."

The purpose of my teaching business is to not only educate the child, but to help fulfill the needs of the whole child so that they succeed in every area of their life. What outcomes do I hope to achieve? The outcome I most want to see is that the child has felt loved and encouraged when they leave my class.

Parents: Please gather needed materials prior to class.
print template on cardstock cheap paper plates tempera paint googly eyes construction paper or color cardstock scissors (parent use) glue paint brush cookie sheet or newsprint- to place craft and paint on. Hopefully this keeps paint spread to a minimum.
Some students get so excited and they are so proud of what they have done that they just HAVE to show me. I will gladly take a quick look at their hard work, but I will not grade it. No grade...No tears...Just good old fashioned fun! The parents sitting just off camera can see if their child is picking up on the skill. I do not do formal or informal assessments of the students progress.
25 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
For my 3 and 4 your old's, I recommend parents sit next to their children just off camera to help make sure they stay on task, and to keep them seated and quiet. I love a child's response. This class does use external sources. I use Google Slides in my presentations. All slides are rated G. This resource will only be used as a screen-share.
