Welcome to Kamp Kindergarten

Thanks for stopping by for a visit. Pull a chair up to campfire and help yourself to some marshmallows and a roasting stick. I will tell you a little bit about myself while you are enjoying the marshmallows.

My name is Tami Steele. I have 35 years experience working with young children in Georgia. I have taught kindergarten and first grade. Most of my experience has been in kindergarten.  I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Early Childhood Education from LaGrange College, a Master of Science degree in Early Childhood Education and a Specialist in Education degree in Early Childhood Education.  The Masters and Specialist degrees are from West Georgia College, now West Georgia State University.

I am a staunch advocate of developmentally appropriate instructional practices for young children. I believe young children learn best by taking an active role in their learning through exploration and play.

I plan to use this blog to share my experiences with you and learn from your experiences you share with me.  I will be sharing posts of interest to teachers, parents, and homeschooling families.  I hope my posts will offer helpful hints and fun activities for little learners. I love books and plan to share posts about books. I will occasionally share posts about travel and recipes.  I look forward to getting to know you.
