Hello, my name is Amanda McDonald and I have been teaching since 2008. I love my job and feel that it is the calling on my life. For 5 years I taught 4th grade, 1 year I taught 5th grade math, 1 year as an Institutional Support Specialist for grades K-5, and now I m an Instructional Coach for grades 3-5! My goal is to make learning fun for students! www.mcdonaldgrade4.blogspot.com
I like to teach math as kinesthetically as possible, and include as many fun aspects as I can! I use a lot of manipulatives, games, songs, and group work to try and make math learning fun! Math is my favorite subject and I want teach in a way that my kids will love it as much as I do! I create products that I have or would use in my classroom. I also try to keep prices reasonably low because I know how much is already spent on our classrooms.
