About

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Doctor Teacher Mommy! I hope you will find lots of resources to make you think, reflect, and try something new with your little ones!

I’m Amanda and I love all things early childhood! As I work toward my doctoral degree, I want to share everything I’m learning with you too.

From the magical moments to the moments that make you wonder why you chose this life, I want you to love every minute with your little one! This site comes after years of ideas, blogging, reading, and a desire to share all of this information with parents and educators everywhere. Here’s a little more about each category:

Doctor: When I completed my B.S. and M.Ed. in Early Childhood Education, I knew I was just starting to understand this fundamental stage of development. Over the years I’ve continued reading everything from parenting books to textbooks to scientific articles, but nothing seemed to be enough.

Join me as I continue learning everything possible about young children in a doctoral degree. While I work towards completing my doctorate in Infant and Early Childhood Development specializing in Mental Health, I want to share everything I’m learning with you!

Teacher: For years, I’ve worked with infants, toddlers, 3’s, 4’s and mixedaged groups of young children in so many different settings. From a Title 1, Headstart, inner-city classroom to a research laboratory school on a university campus, I’ve experienced a wide variety of teaching situations.

Aside from the formal classroom, my experiences include being a ZumbiniĀ® instructor, ZumbiniĀ® Master Trainer, prenatal/postnatal fitness instructor, dance and gymnastics instructor, and many other professions directly working with young children and their families.

Now as an educational coach and curriculum writer, I’m excited to share my knowledge and experiences with educators impacting lives every day!

Mommy: What’s the most humbling way to realize how little you know? Become a parent!

A few years ago I was lucky enough to become a mom to one of the most creative, funny, loving, and best people in the world. Watching his personality come to life day after day has been a nonstop ball of fun!

One of the reasons I felt so lucky in the early stages of motherhood was for all of the wise women I had in my life. They shared resources, stories, ideas, and comfort in knowing that we were all figuring it out together. They showed me that through the many different decisions we made as parents, we all strived to give our little ones the best possible start in life.

I hope you will love and learn from all of the information on this site. And stay in touch, I want to hear from you! Reach out with what you are wondering, wish you had a resource, or anything else. Chances are, if you’re thinking it, another parent is thinking it too and I want to help!

Hugs to your little ones!

Amanda
