Hi. My name is Jennifer and I live in Glendale, Arizona. I am very excited you stopped by and are taking the time to get to know me!
I have taught kindergarten for 7 years but I have also taught 3rd, 4th, and the technology lab. I LOVE kindergarten... that's definitely where my heart is. As a teacher I am ver data driven. I keep checklists up the kazoo and I actually use them to drive my instruction! I also believe in Cooperative Learning! It's amazing what kindergarteners can do if you just give them a chance!
My blog is a place to share ideas with the overall theme of empowering children to be the best they can be! My goal is always to make kids more dependent on themselves and less dependent on me. Problem solving is a huge part to this! I also believe in SHARING which I define as the process of helping others out so they can be the best they can be! (If only all teachers believed in sharing right!)
Personally, I am married and have a four-year-old named Braedon. I am an active mom, a full time teacher, and attempting to blog (etc) and so I don't have time for much else! =) I am the kind of person that if I am not SUPER busy, I am on meds because I can't handle sitting and doing nothing! (It's a blessing and a curse!)
Please feel free to email me at any time! And visit my other site Simply Centers! And if you are really brave, talk to me about blogging via email... I would be more than happy to share my pages with those who want to SHARE great ideas with the world!
Thanks for stopping by!
