TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught first grade for seven years and I absolutely love it. My favorite part is seeing all of the growth from the beginning of the year first graders to the end of the year first graders. I feel incredibly blessed to enjoy going to work each and every day!

I do a lot of cooperative learning and centers within my classroom. I love to be able to integrate technology as much as I can to increase engagement as well.
