I am a 26 year veteran teacher and curriculum writer. I love creating lessons that make learning new concepts engaging and fun. I believe in rigorous, standards-based learning where students are actively engaged with the materials, each other, and the teacher. https://ilove1stgrade.com/
Teaching is all about relationships!

I feel very blessed to have a job that I love (and have loved) for 26 years. I am SO lucky! I love creating rigorous resources that capture the attention of the littlest learner. Reflecting on each lesson to become more effective is my passion. I work hard to build relationships, meet students needs, and keep school exciting for them (and me)! https://ilove1stgrade.com/
