I have taught for 15 years. 11 years in first grade, and 4 years as a Reading Specialist/Literacy Coach. I am currently teaching first grade.
I believe in lots of positive reinforcement. I always try to find the student who is doing the "right" thing. I find first graders love to please, and respond well to this. My favorite part of the day is Guided Reading time. I also love to use foldables and projects.
