I have been teaching since 2001. The first 2 years I spent teaching full day kindergarten. Since then I have been teaching wonderful little 6-7 year olds in first grade!
I love to keep kids moving and grooving. I do what I can to make an activity that gets them thinking and moving. I think of myself more as a coach some days. =)
I was chosen to write our first writing curriculum from scratch (for first grade) a few years back as well as became an official Step Up to Writing Trainer. I worked closely with 1 other first grade teacher to rewrite our math curriculum to align with the new Common Core Standards this past summer.
Graduated with honors with a degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education in 2001. Graduated in 2007 with a 4.0 from Penn State University with a Masters in Teaching and Curriculum (with having my first baby in the middle of the master's program! Not quite sure how, but I look at it as quite an achievement!)! :P
I'm a busy mom of 2 little boys---ages 7 and 3! :) Stop by my blog for more ideas and freebies! www.rulintheroost.blogspot.com
