about Kindergarten Cafe

Zeba McGibbon

thekindergartencafe@gmail.com

I love creating teaching resources and sharing teaching strategies with other teachers. I have been teaching for five years in both kindergarten and first grade. Currently, I am teaching kindergarten in Massachusetts. I have loved teaching both kindergarten and first grade, but kindergarten really has my heart.

I love teaching my students to be curious learners, critical thinkers, and good friends. I try to create and implement hands-on learning that fosters deep understanding and high student engagement. It is important to me to teach the whole child, which is why I have created several social emotional resources to support the social emotional development of my students.

I have been creating resources for about a year and have enjoyed every minute of it. I absolutely love sharing my resources with other teachers and hearing how teachers use and enjoy my resources. If you ever have ideas for resources you would like to see or feedback on resources that you already have, please don't hesitate to reach out!
