This is my 16th year teaching. My first 2 years I taught 3rd grade. I then taught 2nd grade. I have spent the last 10 years teaching first grade. I have loved all three!! First grade is my passion. I love the growth that the children make from beginning to end!
I have a student center approach. I value the input that the student's bring daily. Technology is a major part of our day. My students are allowed to bring in their digital devices to help them learn. This year we have become a blended learning classroom. A good part of our day uses technology as a way to gather information and show what the student's have learned. In addition to technology my students visit literacy and math centers daily.
