I have been teaching a 3rd grade classroom in Illinois for the past 15 years. I love it! I've recently had the chance to attend several workshops on the new Common Core Standards.
I love cooperative and hands-on learning.
Yet to be added
I have a Bachelor's in Elementary and Special Education from SIU Carbondale. I have a Master's in Elementary Education from SIU Edwardsville.
I Love teaching and the challenges and adventures that accompany each new day.
