TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I will begin my 20th year of teaching this new school year. My first job was in 6th grade, but moved to 2nd grade the following year when 6th grade was permanently moved to the middle school. I spent 11 years in 2nd before switching districts and moving back to 6th. Then I spent 3 years in 4th grade, which was so much fun! I moved back to second for another 2 years. This year I am looping with my first graders to second. I am having a fabulous time!!
