TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Hi! I am Elizabeth, currently a 3rd grade teacher in South Carolina. This is my fifth year teaching and I couldn't imagine ever doing anything else! I have taught kindergarten and first, third, and fifth grades. Originally from the Carolinas, I spent two years teaching in New Jersey, one of which was at an innercity school. Education is truly my passion and I embrace change, aiming to keep my class as exciting and motivating as possible.
