Day In The Life


I guide children and other educators as a preschool and mentor teacher.


Day In The Life Of A Preschool Teacher

My Day to Day

My days are a blend of guiding our curious three to five-year-olds through their daily discoveries and mentoring fellow teachers. Each morning, I collaborate with my little learners to set up our space, ensuring it's filled with activities that spark their current interests. Our days are structured around key moments like circle time and creative play, but I always keep an eye on their evolving curiosities and needs, making every day a unique adventure in learning and growth.
