I have taught pre-school-2nd grade for over 20 years. I still get butterflies the night before the First Day of school! I love teaching, it is my hobby!
Use anything that works! :o) I teach children not just a grade! I am an inclusion/co-teaching teacher. I collaborate with our Special Education teachers and they come into "our" classroom to team teach with me. It is so much fun! I believe children are "snowflakes" and they learn in different ways. I teach to their level and work from there! I simply LOVE it.
My students, their families, my teacher friends, my team mates, and my administrators are my "honors and awards"! I love them! ~MSA ~Curriculum Specialist certification -National Board
BS and MSA from East Carolina University.
I am addicted to Whimsy Clips clip art! LOL
