Welcome to kindergarten!
Hello! Check out this link to learn all about Miss Van Oss!
My philosophy of teaching elementary school is simple: take the imagination and excitement brought into the classroom by my students and use it to help them become critical thinkers and explorers of the world! No student should ever be denied their creativity and individuality but rather these should be used to foster a desire to learn.

One of the best things I learned while in college was that as a teacher, I can use other people's ideas for lesson plans and activities and adapt them to fit my classroom. Therefore, I have created a list of some of my favorite online resources for lesson plans to share with you!
Kappa Delta Pi - Teaching Resources
*This is the national Education Honors Society I belong to ... always lots of great ideas here!
PBS Teacher Resources
*I especially love their social studies lessons!
NEA Lesson Plans
*National Education Association - great lesson plans, especially ones that are applicable to the entire country!
I use this website to create handwriting worksheets in the classroom. If you would like to help your students practice at home, check out the print style worksheet, as this is the one we use in the classroom.
