I have been a teacher for 10 years... I have been teaching first grade since 2011 and that's where I plan to stay! Love my little firsties.
I love using lots of hands-on manipulatives, teaching in small groups, reading aloud in every subject area, and encouraging curiousity and excitement about learning.
