I have taught Kindergarten for a year, 1st Grade for 3 years, and am currently in 2nd Grade!
I ascribe to the Constructivist approach to teaching and view the children as competent learners. I use Daily 5 in my classroom. My teaching strategies and classroom community are heavily influenced by the work done at The Responsive Classroom.
