Thanks for stopping!

It occurred to me the other day that I’ve been posting nearly every day since 2014, but is has been just about that long since I’ve done any kind of introduction, so here’s a little bit about me:

I never wanted to be a teacher. Seriously, I refused to go into education and yet I ended up here anyway so clearly it was meant to be.  My degree Human Development and Family Studies and my first job out of College was teaching preschool.  I have a total of 15 years in the Early Childhood field, including positions teaching toddlers, preschoolers, before and after school, and doing business administration for a child care program. I am currently a specialist with a Child Care Resource and Referral, I get to help programs obtain their quality ratings and provide professional development trainings.

I started this blog because at the time there were a ton of blogs with fun preschool activities, but not very many that were written by teachers who were actually lesson planning and aligning their activities to standards or assessments.  I was looking for a little more information to help me create intentional experiences for my students, and having a very hard time finding it.  So I did what I usually do when I can’t find what I’m looking for; I made it myself.  This has also given me the opportunity to share a lot of what I’ve made for the classroom through both Preschool Ponderings and my Teachers Pay Teachers Store.

When I’m not working in the ECE world I’m spending time with my husband and my two month old daughter. I also love to quilt, bake, and craft – DIY could be my middle name! I hope that You find Preschool Ponderings helpful and informative and if you have any ideas for topics that you’d like to see me cover, please feel free to let me know! You can always reach me by using the email option on the sidebar, I look forward to hearing from you!
