TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have had the privilege of teaching third grade for ten years in a public elementary school. Loved all ten years and was able to use that experience and knowledge when I moved down to first grade. Seven years ago I was moved schools and grade levels where I got the opportunity to teach first grade and have been there since. Most of my high school and adult life has been spent working with children at various ages from birth all the way to third grade in settings ranging from nannying to daycares to full time elementary school teacher. I have been lucky to have had so much experience with all kinds and ages of children!
