3 Tips to Classroom Set Up Post-Covid for Early Childhood Teachers

#1. Each chair is labeled with a child's name and their picture. Although I recently learned that children are not usually the ones to spread the virus, I want to make sure that my classroom is set in a way that makes everyone, adults included, feel safe and comfortable.

#2. Every work space with only have 3 kids at a time. To manage that I will have pictures of each child with velcro on the back. Those pictures will be placed in the workspace I want the child to be in.

#3. Weekly cleaning of...

Teacher Updates from Me to You

This is the first summer I have ever had summer off. It's the first summer in over ten years in which I don't have a camp job. I'm not used to it and I honestly don't like it. Camp not only keeps me busy but is an added income that I never realized the importance of until now.

I'm going to be totally transparent and tell you that I am struggling HARD financially right now. I am doing my best to limit my spending, to stay positive through this time, and to not let my anxiety build up like it...

Teacherprenuer Struggles

If I’m being completely honest, starting a business is HARD. I have been working SO hard to start my business in the last year and nothing has worked the way I’d like it to.

Today was really hard for me. I had a lot self-doubt build up and mindset issues that I am trying to work through. I have learned so much and yet, I feel like I am not good enough. I am a huge dreamer. I dream big! I have enormous goals for myself as a teacher and as an entrepreneur. And yet sometimes those...

My Experiences in the Private School Sector

Private schools were once established in order to provide children with a better education because public schools were not providing the highest education at the time. Working within a private school for a few years and growing up in the private school sector, I was privy to some knowledge regarding teachers and their administration. I have discovered that new teachers are not trained or guided properly and therefore fail their students and worse the administration is usually very...

Falling in love with Education: Part 2

I found passion for the administrative side of education after being offered the camp director position. Don’t get me wrong, being camp director comes with extraordinarily high expectations and an amount of work I had never had before. I was in charge of marketing for camp! What in the world was a girl who had degrees in psychology and early childhood education going to understand about the world of marketing? The work that was involved was all brand new to me but it was work that lit a...

Falling in love with Education: Part 1

Summers were always challenging for me as I got older. I didn’t want to go to day camp because I felt “too old” but I was also too young to start legally working. I suffered from severe separation anxiety, which as a result prevented me from going to sleep away camps. As one can imagine, evenings were boring when the majority of my friends were away at camp. Luckily, my parents knew someone in the area who owned a daycare that would give me an opportunity to work. This was...

My Quarantine Experience

I have a blog series that I started to share with you but I felt this was a necessary addition to the series. I have been seriously struggling emotionally with this quarantine. I never realized how much of an effect something like this could have on me and on my emotions. I keep reminding myself that this is not permanent. That this is only temporary. That I am not alone in this. That I have an amazing support system. But why do I still feel so alone? Why is it that I feel like I'm holding...

Support and Guidance for New Teachers

Support and guidance is something you hear about all the time when you play the educator role. It is known that every teacher will need to ask for help at some point in their career. Most often, teachers need help in the first three years of their career but are afraid to ask. Not only that, private schools don’t necessarily have the tools to provide these teachers with the support that is truly needed. As a new teacher, asking for help can be something that you tend to avoid. Why?...

A Small Share...

I wanted to share a blog piece I wrote as part of a collaboration with another business that offers services to educators and therapists. You can read it below:

Distance Learning for Early Childhood Teachers

Distance learning has been eye opening to every educator, especially those within early childhood. Who ever thought we’d be teaching through Zoom and various online platforms? We had no real time to prepare and honestly, how are we supposed to teach the little ones through a screen...

These are some CRAZY times...

Did you ever imagine being stuck at home because of a pandemic that just continues to spread like wildfire? Did you ever imagine teaching in a time like this? I've been in self- quarantine for almost two weeks and it's been a ride of emotional rollercoasters. I have shifted my knowledge of teaching into figuring out the virtual world and how to teach early childhood through technology.

It's been a HUGE adjustment and I know there are many teachers struggling to provide content that is...
