I have been teaching since 1999. I have taught 3rd grade for 1 yr., 1st grade for 10 years & a K/1 Combo. for 1 year. My heart belongs in 1st grade. I love creating & using new ideas everyday!!!!
I use a hands on approach when teaching. I use Daily 5 in my class, Math Tubs, Guided Reading groups, Writers Workshop & Science Notebooks.
