I began teaching in Las Vegas in 1990 and continued to teach there through August 2015 . I have taught TOTS (3) through Kindergarten, both general and special Ed. In addition, I taught plus KIDS and SED through 2nd grade in summer school. I taught adult ESL for 4 years.
I was the lead teacher for k-5 after school tutoring for 4 years. I also served on 2 school boards. I was a project facilitator for Title 1 TOTS and PreK Programs in Las Vegas.
Anderson is my mother's home town and I moved here to assist her in August 2015. We began attending St. Joseph in September of that year. I have 3 children; my youngest attends St. Joseph. I like the family atmosphere, faith based and personalized education for students. My daughter loves St. Joseph! She has attended Catholic school from prek. I enjoyed volunteering last year and decided to teach here when the opportunity presented itself.
My classroom will be set up according to ECERS-R. The morning class will be a combination prek and k class. It will be child centered, with hands on purposeful play. Emphasis will be on literacy, music and movement, discovery, art , blocks, faith values, dramatic play, fine motor, and mathematics. In the afternoon we will continue extending the above activities at the kinder level plus computer, handwriting and author studies. I plan on quarterly parent meetings offering child and parent activities centered around literacy . I welcome parent volunteers in the classroom! We are going to have a wonderful, fun year! Your child will love school!
