I taught for seven years in an inner city school district, and then moved to a suburban/rural district where I have been teaching for the past four years. My experience as a classroom teacher was in first grade (regular education, then self-contained English Language Learners) before moving to teach Library instruction to grades Kindergarten through sixth.

I just got the "bump" from library back to the classroom and I am so excited to begin teaching all over again! Except this time- I know what I need to have and what I need to do.
