I am honored to have 10 years of experience introducing learners to concepts of community care in diverse educational settings: private preschool, home daycare, co-op school, non-profit school, public preschool, and virtually! I hold an MS in Early Childhood Education from Wheelock College at Boston University, and I also hold professional licensure in Early Childhood Education, Moderate Disabilities, English as a Second Language, and Sheltered English Immersion.
Homework OfferedStudents and their families can extend our scavenger hunt activity, if they so choose, by donating items to a community member or local organization of their choosing.
Assessments OfferedStudents will informally discuss their takeaways from the session after cycling through the planned activities.
-While not required, students may bring a stuffed animal of their choosing as a buddy during class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
