My journey began over 20 years ago in a small academically driven classroom where discipline was a daily occurrence. I was young, naive, and textbook educated.
I returned to higher education when I realized that there were better ways to encourage young children’s academic achievement than drills, seat work and memorization.
I have since realized that DAP is enhanced when the children are engaged with their environment, learning from their experiences; ultimately cutting down on disruptive behaviors- allowing me to opt for redirection as a means of behavior management, enhancing the FUN aspect of my program.
My journey as a life long learner has set me on a path of creating curriculum plans for the busy teacher, advocating for young children to learn in ways that are relevant to their interests and developing a professional growth plan for early education teachers.
Thank you for following along my journey- checking back often for detailed curriculum plans- professional growth certificate opportunities and real life educational experiences for young learners.
