Fun with Phonics (Kids) - Drop In - Saturday
My name is Nancy and I have been working with children for almost 20 years. I started out in my early college years working at a day care center and quickly knew that teaching was my passion. After graduating from High Point University with a Bachelor of Arts in Education, I taught Kindergarten in Illinois for a few years before moving to Seoul, South Korea. In Seoul, I
continued teaching kindergarten for seven years at the Yongsan
International School of Seoul. During that time, I also completed a
Master of Science in Education with an emphasis in Reading and
Literacy from Walden University. In 2015, I made my way to sunny California where I have taught both 1st and 2nd grade for the last five years at a bi-lingual international school in Palo Alto. I continue to learn and grow each year and was recently accepted to a professional development course from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. I also love to sing and
incorporate music, dance and movement into class activities and lessons as much as possible. I plan to be working with children for many years to come!
