I have been teaching for 9 years now. I have taught both Kindergarten and first grade. I've taught Kindergarten for 6 years and I thought first grade for 3 years.
I really like to use small groups, centers, and other teaching styles that make it easy to differentiate. I love manipulatives and anything that allows my kiddos to be hands on with their learning!
Isn't knowing you've made an impact on a child's life enough of an honor?
I have a BA in Elementary Education and Learning and Behavior Disorders from Bellarmine University. I have an MS in Reading from Indiana University Southeast. But we all know it's never enough!
