Millions of students across the U.S. are stuck at home with schools closed due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. Across social media, there is no shortage of memes showing how panicked parents are coping with keeping their children entertained and educated while practicing social distancing to keep their families safe.
What is your professional background?
My professional background consists of over a decade of classroom experience at the preschool level. I have taught in age-specific preschool classrooms, as well as multi-age preschool settings that served preschool children ages 3-5. During my time spent in the classroom, I especially enjoyed integrating multi-sensory experiences, nature, kindness, yoga, and open ended art experiences into the curriculum daily. As I taught over the years, I also learned so much from my young students! Most recently, I served as an administrator at an early learning center. I found this position rewarding as I had the honor of mentoring emerging early childhood educators as well as working alongside some inspiring longtime early childhood educators.
