Philosophy of Teaching:
As a Christian teacher I have the responsibility to be an example to young children and their families. I can share my love for Jesus with them and through the work of the Holy Spirit I can instill the love of Jesus in the hearts of the little blessings in my care. It is important to provide children opportunities to explore God's world with hands-on experiences and creating an environment that is inviting and fun where children can feel loved and safe foster a love for school in their first school experience.

Classroom Goals:
Three-year-old preschool is often a child's first school experience. It is an important time to teach social skills such as sharing, cooperation, and being a friend. My goal is to give each child a fun and exciting first school experience. I praise God for the opportunity to be a child's first teacher where I can have a partnership with parents in giving young children hands-on experiences in exploring God's awesome world.
