My passions in early childhood education are creativity and science. Creativity interests vary from developing phonemic awareness through rhythmic music lyrics to math concepts in music to opportunities to be artsy with different mediums. Science interests include early age and gender involvement in "lab"-like experiences to inter-connections of math and science concepts to giving science equitable classroom time in elementary classrooms.

Here are photos for the older niece's pocket card last November and for her sister/younger niece last week:
