I have taught for 20 years as a classroom teacher as well as a reading specialist. I have taught grades 2nd-5th but my favorite grades are 2nd and 3rd.
I feel that I teach with a mix of the traditional and the new. I love trying out new things! Hands-on projects are always fun! Technology has had a huge impact on my teaching. I like to create my own lessons but if I am researching someone else's, I enjoy lessons that are easy to read and follow. If it is too complicated, I won't bother reading. My lessons on TpT are " easy-peezy" to implement.
Nominated for Teacher of the Year but really, I enjoy all the notes I have received from parents(and students) thanking me. I am humbled and when I have a not so good day, I pull them out and remind myself that teachers do make a difference!!
