With over 600 resources, we have what you need to teach kindergarten

Welcome! I am the teacher who created the Simply Kinder Community! I am so honored you have stopped by to see what we are all about.

I believe kindergarten can and should be academic and fun.  I believe teaching the whole child is just as important as academics.  I believe as an educator, I should meet students where they are – no matter what it takes.  I believe that resources should be used to supplement, not as main curriculum.

I taught for 14 years, most of those in kindergarten. I have a Masters Degree in Early Childhood Education with a reading endorsement. I am married with two boys; both of our kids struggled to learn in school.  I am passionate about creating resources to help teachers  because I have experienced the need and impact both a teacher and as a mom. 

Our goal at Simply Kinder is to create a positive space were early childhood educators feel supported because teaching kindergarten is better together.

Welcome again and I am so glad you are here.
