I am currently a second grade teacher in Michigan. I have taught for 16 years now! Wow! . I am very enthusiastic about teaching and my students.
I am very hands on and visual. Therefore, I try my best to find assessments that are not the typical paper and pencil lesson. The students have helped me over the years tweak my lessons in order to make things fun and deeper level thinking worthy. I love a vibrant class with lots of partner/group work. My classroom is my second home and I'm happy to share my thinking with you.
