I have been teaching for 13 years. In that 13 years I have taught 3-4 year olds, Kindergarten, 3rd grade, and am currently teaching 1st grade.
I believe that the early years in a child's education are the most crucial. The foundation that is laid is important in the kind of learner my students are and will become. It is an important job that I pray I do to the best of my ability everyday!
