This is my 7th year teaching, with 5 of those years in urban schools in the Cincinnati area. I have taught Kindergarten (3 years), 1st grade, and now 2nd grade for 3 years.
I absolutely LOVE hands-on activities. They are definitely the way that I keep my students on task, entertained and learning in my classroom. I also use a lot of Kagan structures every day.
I graduated from Wilmington College (Wilmington, Ohio) with a BS in Early Childhood Education in 2007.
