Early Childhood and Early Childhood Special Education Teacher

Without question, children are the most amazing people to interact with on a daily basis. They often see the world from a perspective that most adults forget about.

I hold a licensure in Early Childhood Education and Early Childhood Special Education. In December 2012, I completed my masters of education in this area from the University of Minnesota. Though the majority of my experience has been with children ages 2-6, I have gained great knowledge and understanding of the primary age during my student teaching sessions and and while tutoring kindergartners.  I’ve also gained experience with infants while teaching summer ECFE classes.

I am a strong believer in creating the most engaging lessons that relate personally to children. Through student teaching and work experiences, I have found that these lessons tend to be the ones that develop the most excitement and learning in a classroom. I have used this theory when developing lessons for infants in special education programs, with preschoolers in a variety of settings and in a second grade classroom. Each lesson is developmentally different, but the basic concept remains the same.
