So, being a mom was never easy, but it was the only thing I wanted to be when I was growing up. I’m Sandy Peart, the owner of KinderReady! Who knew that my love of children would turn into a lifetime career. While my classmates were dreaming of their future job and careers, I was dreaming of having my own children and how to help them become contributing members of society. I married my husband, Rodger, right out of high school. Daniel was born 3 years later and my dream came true, along with many challenges, stages, tears, laughs and quick learning...LOTS of learning. Raising children was much harder than I thought it was. Blogs didn’t exist when I was raising my children, but we had Dr. Spock. And no, this Dr. Spock was not the logical Star Trek character, but was the well-known child development guru of the 80’s. Without him, my kids would have been on their own.
During the time our two boys, Daniel and Wesley, were growing up, I began running a home daycare. Then I decided I wanted to know more about children, so I began taking night classes. Before I knew it, I had a bachelor’s degree from Texas Christian University in the Education of Young Children. I began teaching at an elementary school where I loved being a lifelong learner and continued my education and learning about the development of young children. After teaching 3rd grade and 4th grade, I earned a master’s degree in educational administration and served as Curriculum Coordinator for 3 years and Assistant Principal for 7 years. Daniel, my oldest son, has earned two bachelor’s degrees, a master’s degree, and is currently pursuing his doctorate. My youngest son, Wesley, also earned a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree. His wife, Tiffany, also holds a bachelor’s degree. As you can see, education is a family affair. While all of this was going on, my wonderful husband was a constant source of support to our boys and to me. He was the calm in our chaos.
About a year ago, I made the decision to leave public school and wanted to pursue my own interest in early childhood education which evolved into KinderReady, LLC. Using my knowledge and passion for children, we are able to facilitate learning in toddlers and preschoolers to make sure they are ready for kindergarten and the rigorous Texas curriculum.
I’m eager to share my experiences with you, but am even more excited to interact and learn from you. Follow my KinderReady Parenting Blog for parenting tips, strategies, advice and more!
