TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have 11 years of teaching experience, mostly in grades 1-2. I'm back at first grade and I love it! It's really fun to watch them develop and mature as readers and learners over the course of the year. I'm married to a principal which has its positive and negative! I teach in a Christian school which gives me many blessings, one of which is supportive parents and other Christian teachers and families!
