Welcome to Kindergarten

Welcome to my brand new website. I hope you can find useful information on this site. I have been teaching in the field of early childhood education for a number of years. I have been working in the WCSD for the past seven years. I worked for CAPC for four years in the district, in their Pre-K program, and I have been teaching Kindergarten for WCSD going on three years. I look forward to sharing information with you on my website. If you need to contact me for any reason, please use the information below.

The district is embracing PBL (Project Based Learning) and Purposefully Play as a way that drives instruction. I have been embracing this style of teaching for multiple years. The emphasis in this curriculum in Kindergarten is that we develop stronger social emotional skills, as well as, life time learners. We are also maintaining New York state teaching standards, as well as, research based and developmentally appropriate practices with the kindergarten curriculum.
