I've been teaching for 15 years ~ first and third grades.
If I'm not excited about the lessons I teach, the kids probably aren't going to be either. I like to try different strategies as I teach lessons. I like to use a lot of hands-on approaches in cooperative group settings. Moving along to 21st century teaching..... :-)

My other full-time job is being a wife and a mom of 2 boys. I (along with thousands of other teachers) enjoy being home in the summer to catch up on quality time with my family. I enjoy going to the beach and spending summers on the baseball fields watching our guys play.
