I am a first grade teacher, but taught 4th grade for eight years.
I like to use hands-on activities in my classroom to reinforce the skills the children are learning. I am thankful to be in a building that has a LOT of technology, so I use my Smart Board daily.
Montvale Elementary School Teacher of the Year 2010-2011 school year
