    Name Goes Here

    I bring many years of experience working with children and I understand how research can be applied in the classroom. I utilize music and movement at circle time which decreases challenging behaviors and increases engagement, comprehension. The trainings and activities that I share have all been proven to work. I teach using a integrative method meaning no subject is ever isolated. All activities teach the whole child and across the curriculum. My style of teaching sets teachers and children up for success and promotes community, connection and a learning environment where all children can thrive.
