This will be my 16th year teaching, but I began 34 years ago. I left the profession for 18 years to raise my children and did a variety of part-time jobs. This is my 8th year back, and I'm still on the learning curve! I currently teach 4th grade, which I think is the perfect grade for me.
I like to give students choice and ownership over their learning whenever I can. I also love to integrate technology into my classroom with my SMARTBoard and 6 iPads.
