I have been teaching 1st grade for 11 years. I taught 1 year of kindergarten as well. I got to see many different types of education programs as my husband and I live in different places while he was in the military. I have worked for the federal government and also in the public school sector.
I believe in the I do, we do, you do way of teaching. My children are very busy and almost all of my lessons are as hands on as possible. I love keeping all of the children involved at the same time. I love to have my children teach me something that I have taught them, it shows me that they have mastered the concept!
Yet to be added
I have my undergraduate degree from Juniata College- I have a BS in Early Childhood, Special, and Elementary Education. I was able to complete this program in 4 years and I dual student taught. I have my master's of education from Saint Francis University in just education. I am also looking into taking classes in Curriculum and Instruction or Technology Education.
I am married and I have three beautiful children. We live in rural PA, and I teach in a wonderful school district in that area!
