I have been a teacher for 10 years at 3 different schools. I taught first grade for 3 years, spent a few months in 4th grade, and am now back to teaching 2nd grade for my 7th year!
I love having my students work in cooperative groups. I believe in hands on learning and the use of manipulatives to allow students to create meaning for themselves.

I graduated from the University of Massachusetts--Amherst in 2003 with a BS in Psychology and a minor in Mathematics. In 2004, I graduated from Boston Collge with a Masters in Elementary Education.
I'm super excited to have a TpT store and a blog. I look forward to sharing and creating ideas for classroom use. Please feel free to visit my blog: http://successinsecondgrade.blogspot.com
