I have been a teacher since 2001. The time has flown, & I can hardly believe it. Most of my teaching career has been spent teaching Kindergarten and first grade, but I have spent a year as a 3-5 reading instructor and one harrowing year in 7th grade. While I did enjoy my time in the upper grades, I love the little ones the best!
I love having fun with my students. Most of my teaching is through hands-on activities that sneak in the learning when my students think they are simply having fun. I also believe that organization up front is key to a happy teacher's year. If I can organize it in advance I will, and then I'll be way less stressed out later. http://www.carrberrycreations.com
