My background: I’ve spent my entire career in early childhood education; I worked in preschools, after-school programs, elementary schools, then for five years as a kindergarten and first grade teacher! Right now I’m lucky enough to be spending some time as a stay-at-home mom to twin boys. As a teacher I really enjoyed themed teaching, and hands-on activities that encouraged kids to be readers, artists and scientists! I am passionate about being creative and making learning fun and exciting for kids!
How affiliate links work: I have partnered with Amazon so that if you click a link from this site and purchase something, I will get a small percentage of the profits. It does not cost you anything!! I will only link to items that we have and think are worth owning. It’s a way for me to help support my time at home with the boys, but you are under NO obligation to buy anything!! My primary purpose for writing this blog is not to make money- it’s to share helpful ideas with other parents and teachers. This is just a way to generate a small amount of income without having annoying adds cluttering up the site or asking people to pay for content. If you have any questions about how affiliate links work, feel free to contact me!
