TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've been teaching first grade for 17 years. I also taught a 1/2 combo many years ago and a k/1 combo. In case you didn't know...combos are hard! Ha! Be sure to visit my blog at firstgradechatter@blogspot.com!

MY TEACHING STYLE

A balance of sugar and spice!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I have a Masters Degree in Reading.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I live in California with my hubby and we have two kids, ages 21 and 22. Both kids are out of the house so we are empty nesters! That is hard to get used to.
