Waaaaaaaay 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 was published on 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 huge resource. Now, there are more than 16,000 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 workshops to early childhood professionals.
I also have a real heart for those who have a chronic illness. You see, 11 years ago I was diagnosed with end-stage idiopathic (which means cause unknown) congestive heart failure at 40. My heart only functioned at 10% and the prognosis was grim. Well.........here I am 11 years later. It has not always been easy. I've been evaluated for a heart transplant. I've had 2 different internal cardiac defibrillator implanted to shock my heart if it decided to stop (they were named Pace-A-Ramma-Damma-Ding-Dong and Ol' Sparky). In February 2016, I had a new fangled bi-ventricular pacemaker/defibrillator installed (It's named Constance Tubbathump the Bi-ventricular). It keeps my heart a pumpin' and gives it a shock to start it back up. Hopefully, this will keep me around for many more years!
