This year begins my 11th year of teaching 1st Grade!! I love this age, and am passionate about what I do!! Learning should be fun for my kids and my centers are designed with them in mind!
I am definitely a visual and kinesthetic learner and remember this when teaching! If I can teach it using a song, or a game, then I'm all for it!! Learning should be fun, and something that once grasped, stays with you forever!
Yet to be added
I graduated with a BA in Education from Cyncoed college in Wales. I was the first student from my college to do a full year exchange program, and attended Hendrix College in Arkansas for a year. That's where my love of the US grew, and this year marks my 11th year of teaching in Florida! :)
Originally from Wales, I love the way the kids in my class pick up on my accent as the year progresses!! Creativity is something that wakes me up at night - from designing new ideas, penning songs for the class, or simply thinking up a new ways to teach a skill. I love teaching .... it's what I do!! Outside of teaching, I am married to an amazing man and we celebrated our 2nd wedding anniversary in July. We are 'parents' to three dogs - and it's thanks to them that we met! :)
