First Lutheran School and Church Torrance, Ca

I have been a preschool teacher for 25 years in a 3-4 year old classroom of 13-30 children. I  provide the students with a variety of materials and resources for them to explore, manipulate, and use for learning and in imaginative play. I attend to their basic needs, teach age appropriate basic skills such as color, shape, number and letter recognition and social skills. Organize and lead activities that promote physical, mental and social development, such as games, arts and crafts, music, storytelling, and chapel time.

I observed and evaluated children's social developments and behaviors and identified children showing signs of emotional, developmental, or health-related problems. I held parent/teacher conferences twice a year to discuss their child's progress and needs, to determine their priorities for their child and their development goals throughout the school year.

I enforce all administration policies governing staff, students and parents, attended professional and staff meetings, educational conferences, and teacher training workshops. Discuss and evaluate individual students' needs, development and progress with my co-teacher and administration. Collaborate with staff members to plan activities that would provide learning in a fun, loving, and safe environment.

Prepare weekly lesson plans and materials [following approved curricula] for class activities to meet their varying needs and interests and to facilitate creative play, motor-skill activities, opportunities to observe, question, and investigate in a fun and safe way. 

Teach and set a good example with proper eating habits and personal hygiene. Serve snacks according to nutritional guidelines of the school.

 Warmly greet arriving children and parents every morning and help them get settled, say their goodbye's and select activities that interest them.

Head Teacher 09/1993 to 09/2005
Montessori School of Manhattan Beach Manhattan Beach, Ca
I started at the Montessori School of Manhattan Beach as an assistant teacher to a Head Teacher and Lead Teacher for 2 years. As I grew to appreciate and enjoy the Montessori philosophy I enrolled at UC Irvine for 4 semesters to get a credential in Montessori teaching. I then became a head teacher in a classroom of 30 children with 2 assistant teachers for the next 10 years. My role as a Montessori Teacher was to teach and guide by providing the details and procedures and information so the child could practice and internalize these skills. I prepared a well-organized, safe and loving classroom that was equipped with special materials that encouraged freedom of movement and choice.
Teacher 09/1989 to 08/1993
