Philosophy of Teaching:
As a preschool teacher, I believe in creating engaging and hands-on developmentally appropriate fun-filled lessons to encourage growth spiritually, socially, physically, cognitively, and emotionally. God has uniquely created each little blessing with various strengths and abilities. Through interaction, exploration and support, each student will be nurtured and continue to grow and develop as they begin their journey in school and learn about the world God has created.
My classroom goal is to create a safe, loving, happy, and Christian environment to encourage the curiosity of young minds to develop, learn and grow. Through the use of a wide-range of activities, and supporting a child’s needs to ensure each student is meeting age appropriate tasks. Working with students and their families to provide an enjoyable preschool experience that will promote a desire for lifelong learning. I will enthusiastically provide an atmosphere of respect, patience, understanding and joy.
