Meet Deborah

I am a teacher who is always learning and growing so as you read my blog, you will see that I am also always changing my approach towards teaching based upon what I believe my students need from me and what I am currently learning about best practices in early childhood education.  I believe the best learning takes place through meaningful play and exploration so I fill my small classroom environment with opportunities for the children to explore new and interesting processes and materials every single day.
