My Students

I have a passion for teaching since I was very young. My passion is to teach wonderful preschoolers. I believe this is the most important age of education, young children are like clay and we are the artists who create awesome masterpieces.

Seeing the world through my students' eyes has helped me to teach them to explore invent and create challenges.

My students keep me going and wanting to wake up every morning looking for more strategies and knowledge. I want to be a better teacher because of my students.

My Project

The NAEYC Annual Conference is one of the largest early childhood conferences. Each year, teachers, administrators, students, and researchers attend presentations and exhibits to explore the latest learning strategies in the early childhood field.

In addition to these amazing events planned, they also have exciting professional development opportunities and giveaways planned!

The annual Conference is held in Washington, D.C. There will be about 500 break-out sessions with many tactile learning opportunities. Here we can deepen our professional knowledge with NAEYC’s speakers and training opportunities. The ideas and lessons learned at the conference will be utilized in my classroom for providing additional instructional strategies for struggling and enriching student learning. This will benefit every student in my classroom. The conference will allow me to grow as a professional and learn new strategies for teaching various academics.
