A Kindergarten teacher's task is no small or easy one! One has to prepare a huge amount of knowledge to satisfy this tender age of mental hunger! They are all little sponges ready to make new discoveries each and every day! I provide a safe environment with mutual respect for everyone in which to learn, while also providing many hands-on manipulatives to practice the concepts they need to master. This would include many multisensory opportunities as well, in order to reach as many different learners as possible! I believe in following the path of the individual child with their varied and wide range of background experiences and developmental milestones achieved. I want to prepare them for the enriching world of reading, and building that solid foundation in working with number sense.
