I have been teaching for a decade! :) Love teaching Kindergarten, but started teaching First Grade this year. It is a change, but I am getting my creative juices flowing through this site and on my own by trying something new. I have taught Special Education Preschool, 2nd Grade, Kindergarten and now 1st Grade. I also spend my summers tutoring and Teaching 3rd Graders to help them pass I-READ.
Independent students create learning opportunities for themselves. I use stations, parts of Daily 5, and also CAFE.
Teacher of the Week in our Local Newspaper.
Masters in Elementary Reading
I love wake boarding in the summer. I have two cats and two dogs...it is like a zoo. One of my dogs is a 90 lb black lab who thinks he is 10 lbs and would play with a tennis ball until he collapses and the other is a 14 lb mix dog who thinks she is 90 lbs. My cats, well, they have their own personalities and can check them out in my main picture. :)
