I have been teaching for 16 years! My first 6 years were in Kindergarten and for the last 10 years I have been in the first grade. I absolutely love primary!!
I regularly use hands-on activities and visuals to bring unfamiliar concepts to life. I have many English language learners so this is vital! My students love centres, iPads, videos, and PowerPoint games. My favourite subjects to teach are science and math.
