I have taught 1st grade for over 13 years. During those 13 years I also taught 2nd grade math and eventually had a split program of 1st and 2nd grades.
Traditional teaching will always have room in classrooms because basics cannot be forgotten. Hands on learning tends to work best since it involves most of the senses.
Yet to be added
I did not go to school to become a teacher. Teaching is in my blood with my family and extended family as teachers. Eventually my Finance and Economics degrees became evident when all students going through my math program came out strong!
I'm a mom of 2 children- a boy and a girl and love watching them grow. They are busy bees so keeping them active physically and mentally is my goal!
