I have been teaching for 18 years now. I started out in 2nd grade, moved to 5th, 4th and now I have been in 3rd grade for 8 years. I have been lucky to work with many different teacher who have been in different places in their careers. I have learned so much from each and every one of them. During my 18 years I have co-taught with 5 different special education teachers. I love when other teachers work in my classroom. It opens my eyes up to new/different strategies/styles.
