I have been teaching for 4 years now in Colorado. I taught 1st grade for the first three years and now I'm teaching a 1st/2nd grade combo class. I love teaching in the primary grades!!
It's all about the presentation-!! My goal in the classroom is to keep it fun so that they don't realize we're actually "learning." Movin and groovin is the name of our game!
"Best Teacher In The Universe" - awarded to me by the sweetest class of first graders :)
I graduated from The College of Saint Rose in Albany NY with a degree in Childhood Education (K-6)
I'm a Colorado gal. First and second grade are where my heart lies. I feel privileged to get up everyday and teach the children in my class!
