TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have enjoyed 10 years of teaching - 6 in kindergarten, 2 in second grade and am now in my 3rd year of being a 4th and 5th grade gifted interventions specialist! I love teaching, especially literature!

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am EXTREMELY passionate about what I do. Some may even say to the point of being obsessive! The things in my store have been used successfully with students. My items may not have the highest quality clipart, borders or fonts, but my students have not cared! :) My main focus is finding things that inspire them, but create learners, thinkers and problem solvers at the same time!
