I have been in education since 2004, when I began teaching preschool. I have also taught first, second, and third grades. Currently, back in 2nd grade which is where I started allll those years ago! Check out my blog at http://www.bainbridgeclass.blogspot.com to learn more!
I believe that learning made fun, IS fun. I strive to make this a reality everyday in my classroom.
