I have been teaching for 13 years. I stayed home for 6 yrs with my two boys and did preschool lessons with them until they went off to 'big school". Now I am back in the classroom where my children attend school. I've taught 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades. (The majority was in third grade). I was also the grade level GT and ESL teacher.
I like to do a lot of hands-on and real world activities. But as teachers know, in the classroom your best laid plans turn into "whatever works." So often I am a "whatever works" kind of teacher too.

I began creating preschool lessons for my boys and stumbled onto TPT. I realized I could become a seller of the items I created for them. I loved creating so much, I spread to the elementary topics I taught. Then friends began asking me to create things for them and it has grown by leaps and bounds. www.cityteachergoescountry.blogspot.com
