Petite Picassos - Art Enrichment Teacher/TEACHER'S assistant
I chose to teach art to preschoolers because I love kids and I love art, a win-win situation. Children are very capable of going beyond preschool crafts. It excites me to share my and knowledge and help them gain an understanding and appreciation for art and its many masters, such as Kandanski, Picasso, etc. The best part of working at a preschool is getting to see the amazing growth that takes place from ages 2-5.
BELC is a special place because of its caring
and nurturing environment. Hugs are not only welcome, they are encouraged, and everyone is treated
with kindness. One of the sweetest
things I've witnessed so far is the kindness of a child who sits down next to
someone sitting alone. It is both brave and loving.
My favorite children's book is Mix it Up! by Herve Tullet because it engages the reader's imagination as they follow the author's simple instructions and watch colors appear, mix, splatter and vanish. It's a fun, interactive book providing lots of giggles while gaining an understanding of colors.
