I teach primary grades (elementary). I believe there is nothing more rewarding than teaching. Watching children learn and grow before your eyes is incredible.
When you speak to young children you quickly get a sense of their amazement of the world. Everything is new and exciting. In my classroom I encourage imagination and questioning. When it comes to my teaching materials I use charts and activities that scream PLAY ME! With centers and games, the more colourful the better! I have found that when a resource is visually appealing and interesting for children they want to play it again and again.
