I have taught grades K-4th. I have not taught Kindergarten and Fourth for many years. I have taught grades 1-3 for the majority of my teaching career.
I use lots of games to teach and reinforce skills. I try to find ways to make sure all students master all subject areas. Students must be interested in their learning, so I try to match my teaching to my students' learning styles.
