TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've taught extensively in early childhood classrooms. I've served as the director of an early childhood program. I've taught first grade and this year I'm teaching second grade! I'm having so much fun and developing creative resources that have solid learning objectives taught in an interesting way.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I love to present ideas using as many hands-on and interesting ideas as possible.

I LOVED school growing up. My favorite subjects were reading and math. My all-time favorite children's book is "Goodnight Moon."

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

My husband and I are both elementary teachers. :) So there's lots of idea-sharing at our house. You can check his work out too @ http:// www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Dusty-Drosche.
