"Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find
reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts."
- Rachel Carson


My hope for this space is that it will be a place for resources and inspiration that help teachers bring joy and wonder into the elementary classroom. Iā€™m a kindergarten teacher with a passion for teaching about science and nature, as well as finding time for play and exploratory learning.

Read through these pages to see where my passions lie - everything from engaging students in science through quality literature, to bringing curiosity and wonder back to the center of the early childhood classroom, to getting kids outdoors and in touch with nature. 

I've also collected teacher resources that have helped me along the way, including more on designing invitations to create in the classroom and other helpful links.
