I've taught 3rd, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade! I prefer to keep it in the upper elementary/middle school range. The students don't take themselves too seriously, but still understand the subject matter.
When teaching social studies, I can embrace a blended style of teaching. To keep the attention of the students, I include new and fun materials. Most of the time these materials are from my own interests as well.
Yet to be added
I have my Ed. S. in education. I set out to teach elementary grades and found my greatest interests were in upper elementary/ middle grades, and my majors reflect this.
The most important thing you need to know about me is I'm a Twin Mom. (I'm not like a regular mom. I'm a cool mom.) I take great pride in my mommy status! I have 2 year old twin girls. They are a full-time job on top of my full-time job. They have been really sick since the day they were born. I miss a lot of work to stay home with them. We are at a point now, where I am planning to stay home with them next year, and am hoping to supplement our income with such as avenues as TPT. I am a huge fan of TPT and have bought resources from the site since my first year teaching in 2013. I know how supportive the community is and hope to have the same support as well.
