9 years teaching 6-8th grade....currently teaching 5th and loving it!
I make sure the kids know from day 1 that we are family and we will treat each other with respect. I believe in teaching each child according to their individual needs. I also tell the kids that our classroom is not a Democracy but a benevolent dictatorship! LOL
