I have been teaching for 14 years. I began teaching in 2003 and taught first grade. For the past 12 years I taught sixth grade, in a K-6 school, and currently teach 4th grade.
I believe successful engagement in the classroom begins with students taking charge of their learning. Allowing students to understand the "why" through their own processing, thinking, and evaluating, helps to develop and further shape their minds.
Students contacting me years later to say thank you. Those are my shining moments.
