This is my 14th year teaching... I have taught 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th grade. Each one brings its own set of rewards and challenges.
I don't know if I have an exact teaching style. I do NOT like for all the kids to be in their seat... all working on the same things... all very quiet. I think that maybe organized chaos sums it up :) Everyone has different needs... so when you walk in it might look a little confusing, but we're ALL learning!
Does an award for OCD count? Because if it does..... Or an award for being able to "hold it" the longest?
Bachelors of Early Childhood Education from Columbia College (SC) and Masters from Georgia Southern University (GA) Currently working on my Specialists degree ...
I grew up as an Army brat... moving all around the world. I lived in Germany for 8 years as a kid and that made such an impact on my view of the world.
