I have taught 3rd grade for four years, and just moved to 2nd grade this year. It has been a great change, with a lot of opportunities to create new and different things!
I guess I'd say my teaching style is fun...I love to laugh with my kids. My theme this year is the Riley Ranch, and we've had a great time making up sayings and slogans that go along with it. I love to celebrate all things good that my kids do...we're currently learning a flash mob dance to do later in the year. We only get practice time if my kids do well on something in class.
Over the past five years, I have received four grants through various organizations that were written primarily for technology pieces in my building! You can check out my newest endeavor in attempting to blog at http://runteacherrunriley.blogspot.com/
-B.A. in Elem. Education from DePauw University -M.S. in Educ. Administration from Butler University
I love running, especially with my dog, Scout! I finished my first marathon in October, and am looking forward to more races (maybe not a marathon!) in the future!
