I was a special education teacher to upper grade students my first year. I taught 5th grade as a general education teacher the next year, and I taught 1st grade for 4 years...and counting.
SURVIVAL :) I try to keep students engaged with relevant and fun content. I love investigating and discussing literature with read-alouds!

I am a mom, wife, and teacher. I LOVE teaching first grade! I enjoy creating lessons and assignments that can captivate students' attention. I don't enjoy entering grades, answering lots of emails, or any activity I deem a waste of time.
