I'm a third generation teacher, but a first generation American! I love teaching; I was made for it! In the past twelve years I've taught 1st, 2nd,3rd, 5th, 6th and a few splits. Each grade has something wonderful to offer, but it would be lovely to stay in one grade for a little bit longer lol!
My class is a creative, outside the box organized Community of Learners. Together we meet the Common Core, but we do it "Mandy*style" because for me there is no other way. It feeds my soul to create and inspire. I'm really just a big kid in the classroom.
