About the instructor
Amber holds a bachelor’s degree in Child and Adolescent Development from San Francisco State University, a master’s degree in Education from Concordia University, and a doctorate in Human Development and Family Sciences (HDFS) from Iowa State University. 

She is passionate about implementing a play-based, emergent curriculum. Amber believes in capitalizing on teachable moments throughout the day and in following children’s interests.
"High-quality literature not only introduces children to new vocabulary and enriches their language experiences, but it allows children to connect with characters who share similar struggles and triumphs, it helps them develop empathy by giving them a glimpse into the lives of people who are different from themselves, and it provides ample opportunities to practice interpretation of visual information."
Dr. Amber Kreischer
