Welcome to Primary Scouts, I’m Alicia! I’m the sole maker & thinker behind the brand, a Kindergarten Teacher and a certified Librarian living in Texas.
The idea and name of Primary Scouts stems from my passion of foundational learning and always needing to explore, I mean… Scout , new and creative learning ideas for my primary learners. Scout is also the name of my fur-kid.
My teaching experiences over the last 8 years span from teaching 4th Grade Math – to instilling a love of reading and STEM in the Library – to spending years in KINDER, where I honestly feel like I have the opportunity to do all the things that bring me joy >> nurture a love of reading using amazing picture books AND engage my kiddos in hands-on math activities.
Both Primary Scouts and my personal vision is all about intentional and creative learning to help build the strongest primary foundation possible! I hit a personal milestone when I was awarded the 2019, district Trailblazer Award for innovation and creative thinking in the classroom.
In 2018, I earned my Master Degree in Library Science and am certified to teach as a Librarian. Picture books, reading reviews and selecting the most noteworthy books are an essential for my classroom/resources as well as a hobby that brings me J O Y.
I’ve also had the opportunity to work on kindergarten curriculum, be part of a leadership team and lead PD’s all within my school district.
When I’m not teaching or creating content for Primary Scouts, I’m splitting my time between my 15 year old dachshund, Scout and probably having lunch out on patio.
I do hope you’ll stick around for all the fun things happening here at Primary Scouts and even connect to say heyyyy over on Instagram.
