I spent my first year teaching in a self contained ASD classroom for Pre-K and Kindergarteners. I decided to into a general ed classroom my second year of teaching and I spent it in 5th grade...tough year! I finally found my calling as a 2nd grade teacher and have been there for the last 2 years! I FINALLY love my job!!
I teach using real life examples as much as possible! I love having the students enjoy what they are learning. I love finding that "tough kid" and meeting them where they need to be met to learn.
Have not received any as of yet :)
I graduated from Saint Leo University in the Fall of 2009.
Sharing ideas makes all of us better teachers!!
