I taught kindergarten and 1st grade in Sylvania, Ohio at Hill View Elementary school for eight years. My family then moved to Cobb County, Georgia and I taught for 18 years in grades 2-4. I was very lucky to be In Cobb County, and to teach at two great schools, Addison Elementary and Bullard elementary.
Fill the day with opportunities for collaborative discovery, the joy of reading and a liitle bit of silliness!!
