The Sweet Pea Room
As a teaching team, our philosophy is to create a safe and effective learning environment that is inclusive to all children and families. We believe that children learn the most through active learning experiences based in play. Children learn with the support of adults and their peers. Each area of the room is arranged with specific academic and social learning experiences in mind. These experiences provide a challenge for different skill and ability levels along with the opportunity for success at any level. It is so important that our children know they are valued, loved, and supported in our classroom. We are able to give them this by creating a strong bond and a school family through conscious discipline.
Kim, Sweet Peas Teacher
Hello Learning Garden Families! My name is Kim! I have been teaching for over 25 years and have been a part of The Learning Gardens since February, 2020. Teaching has always been my passion. My mom taught preschool for 20 years and my sister is currently a 1st grade teacher at a Sun Prairie Elementary School. I earned my CDA (Childhood Development Accreditation) in 1996. I have also taken many Early Childhood classes at Madison College. Wisconsin has been home all my life. I have 1 younger sister who is married and gave me the great joy of being an aunt to my niece and nephews. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with family and close friends. I am a huge Packer fan. I am so excited to be working with all of the TLG staff and families!
Amber, Sweet Peas Teacher
My name is Amber Storm. I have been in childcare for six years. I grew up in Northern Iowa, then moved to KCMO. Now I am living in Wisconsin. I started working with kids and fell in love with watching them grow every day. I hope to go back to school to get my Associates in Early Education. I love being outside and going on new adventures. My two favorites quotes are: “It takes a big heart to shape little minds.” and “The fact that you worry about being a good teacher, means that you already are one.”
