My classroom is often described as "controlled chaos". I love to have my students moving and working collaboratively. Most definitely HANDS ON! I also believe strongly in using visual cues and in using color to help with organization and to enhance memory.

Working with little people has been my passion for the past 20 years. I have two "grown" daughters now so spending my days with young eager learners is extremely fulfilling. Teacher blog: hwlearninglinks.wordpress.com
