My name is Mary Kay Hendershot. I am so happy you decided to drop by today and learn a little about me and my store/blog. I have been teaching for 22 years in the public school systems with a variety of children and disabilities. My heart is in preschool, especially special education. I have found that so many parents and teachers with 3-5-year-old preschoolers are amazing and supportive but extremely stressed out. That is how my store was formed to help alleviate some of that stress and enable parents and teachers to sit back and enjoy their children and students!!
I am married and I have 2 children, Jack (16) and Ava (13). We just adopted our third rescue dog during the COVID quarantine.
My store and my blog revolve around the idea that all of our kids especially preschoolers have learned behaviors. These behaviors can be changed sometimes quickly and sometimes very slowly with a deliberate plan and routine. The foundation for all of this change comes from developmentally appropriate practices, patience, structure, and daily routines. They also need multiple, quick and simple activities that keep them engaged and busy. BOOM- Busy little hands!!! My products and hopefully some of my blogs will help try to achieve some of these and bring peace and calm to the preschool classrooms as well as to the homes where these adorable children live and cohabitate with their families!!
