I have taught 1st/2nd grade for 7 yrs(A 1st and 2nd combo for 5 years and a straight 1st grade for 2 years!). I also taught Kindergarten overseas for a year. There is just something amazing about teaching young children. They have so many "light-bulb" moments! I also love being able to influence their characters to become positive and loving citizens of our school, community, nation and world!
