I just completed my fourth year teaching and couldn't be happier. I taught third and fourth grade in Nashville, TN. I now teach first grade in Alaska. I love it all!
I am pretty energetic in the classroom. I think all elementary teachers are that way. I use Whole Brain Teaching and try to involve my students' brains and bodies simultaneously. In our classroom we are constantly talking, sharing, making mistakes, and as we like to say in first grade, "cracking up" --- it's a great way to spend your days! I firmly believe that teacher passion equals student engagement.
