I have been teaching in Charlotte County, Fl for 8 years. I taught fourth grade for two years, fifth grade (math and science) for two years, and for the past 4 years I have taught all subjects to a class of fifth graders. I have my Master's degree in Educational Leadership so I have experience being an administrator and helping creating things for the entire school as well as my classroom.
I love using cooperative learning in the classroom! I love opportunities when students can learn from one another. I try to make as many hands on lessons for my students to use while learning concepts or reviewing.
