I am a first grade teacher of 10 years in both California and Texas. I have also taught second and kindergarten. I love creating lessons that make learning new concepts fun for all my students. I am in my 13th year of teaching. Creating lessons and using other's creative lessons fills my teaching with passion. I love to search out the standards and create something to make learning that standard both meaningful and effective.
I love hands on teaching where students are engaged in their learning with all of their body and brain!
