I have taught 1st grade for three years and 4th grade for four years.
Over the last several years I have been lucky enough to receive quite a bit of training using Kagan (cooperative learning). These structures definitely help keep the students involved as well as creating accountability for each individual student.
I graduated from Western Michigan University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary and Early Childhood Education.
