I am in my 7th year of teaching first grade. I also teach incoming kindergarteners every summer in July to help give them a little extra "boost" before beginning school! I have also tutored several students during my summers "off" (haha!)in reading and math. :)
I love to change my style all the time! I want to make sure my style fits my kids and their needs. If I need to make more hands-on activities, so be it! More cooperative learning... done! Games? You bet!
I was nominated for the Horizon award for first year teachers in Kansas after I finished my inital year of teaching. I am about ready to embark on my 3rd year of being a mentor to a first year teacher.
Graduated from Oklahoma Baptist University with my BSE in May 2005. I will have my Master's degree in Education in December 2011 from Baker University in Kansas.
