In Lieu of Preschool

I have always loved teaching and working with children. Growing up, I had multiple long-term baby-sitting jobs. In college, I worked in the nursery at a preschool as well as nannied a little boy for 2-3 years. I've taught Children's Church and Sunday School at various levels. I have a BS in Elementary Education (K-6), a MA in Reading Education (K-12), and hold National Board Certification in Early and Middle Childhood/Literacy: Reading-Language Arts. I was a 5th grade classroom teacher for 5 years and a K-5 reading intervention teacher for two. I began staying at home in 2008 when Luke was born and I feel so blessed to still be at home with Luke and Lilah now! I love to read blogs and novels, spend time with my whole family, cook healthy foods from scratch, and teach! My life-long goal is to become a published author. :)

I enjoy sharing what we do "in lieu of preschool" on my Facebook page and blog: arts & crafts; educational activities; toy, recipe, & book recommendations; good sales; and links to resources we've found helpful. Come and see! :)
