During her eighteen years as a kindergarten teacher, she developed a method of teaching that provides an excellent classroom atmosphere in which young children can excel in learning. She believes the first two weeks of school are very important because that is when the teacher sets the stage for an exciting, adventurous, and memorable academic school year. During that time, her students learned what acceptable behavior was in the classroom and while moving across campus as a group. Once they learned what was acceptable, the rest of the school year fell into place, and the children were excited to learn. This drastically reduces discipline problems for the rest of the school year. She has mentored two teachers at the request of her principal, using these methods and both continue to use them. These methods are simple, effective, and straightforward.
