Over the past 25 years I have taught in every elementary grade and - and have been the reading specialist and gifted and talented teacher. The variety in a teacher's job is what I love. 1. Follow my blog. Growing Roots has a blog! 2. Check out my pinterest boards. Growing Roots is on Pinterest!
I like hands on learning and find that content 'sticks' best when students make connections.
