Owner, Editor, Educator, and All Round Web Guru
Way back in 1997, I became frustrated with the lack of free online resources for early childhood educators. I did not have the budget to go out and buy a massive library of preschool curriculum resources. I decided to do something about it! The first version of The Perpetual Preschool published a free page provided by AOL. I posted all of the ideas that I successfully used in my classroom. I encouraged experts, like yourselves, to share what worked in their classrooms.
Since that time, The Perpetual Preschool has changed and evolved into a tremendous resource. Now, there are more than 50,000 ideas that you can use in your classroom.
In addition to the free curriculum ideas on The Perpetual Preschool, I developed the Perpetual Preschool Workshops. Since 1998, the Perpetual Preschool Online Workshops have offered 16 different learning modules to early childhood professionals. All of the seminars are self-study, Complete them at your leisure. They will never expire. The best part is they cost $16.00 each.
A Heart For Teaching
I also have a real heart for those who have a chronic illness. You see, 12 years ago I was diagnosed with end-stage congestive heart failure at 40. My heart only functioned at 10%, and the prognosis was grim. Here I am 12 years later. It has not always been easy. I’ve had two different internal cardiac defibrillators implanted to shock my heart if it decided to stop. In February 2016, I had a new fangled bi-ventricular pacemaker/defibrillator installed. I believe that my online teaching and continual development of The Perpetual Preschool has kept me around for all these years!
