This will be my 12th year teaching. I have taught grades 1-4 but 3rd grade is where my heart is! My grade is departmentalized and I have two classes per day.
I believe in putting the students in charge of their own learning, and providing them with the tools to be responsible, respectful learners. I have high expectations for every child that enters my room, and am so excited to see them meet and exceed those expectations year after year. We have an active class, and I am experimenting with alternative seating arrangements. No assigned seats in my room!
