Class experience

US Grade Kindergarten - 2
Beginner Level
Follows Teacher-Created Curriculum
  • Cultivate a lifelong love for reading. Enhance literacy and language skills. Promote creativity, imagination, and critical thinking. Foster social-emotional development and empathy.
I have a Bachelor of Science in Human Development and a Master of Arts in Teaching from Howard University. After graduation I taught one year in 2nd grade before moving to join the kindergarten team for 5 years. I decided to leave the classroom when my first son was born but my passion for teaching and learning have never dissipated. I now homeschool both of my sons, ages 6 and 9 and have taught multiple online classes since 2020, including book clubs!
Homework Offered
Each week, children will be tasked with reading 1 or more chapters of the book independently, or with an adult, before we meet again. The pages have fairly large writing and generally have a picture on each page so it shouldn't be too much reading. They will also be asked to either write a sentence or two about their favorite part of their independent reading and/or make an illustration to share at the beginning of the next class. The drawing/writing is an optional piece.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
