I have been teaching since 1999. I started teaching 3rd grade. Then I taught 1st grade for 14 years. I am now back in 3rd grade! I enjoy making creative & hands-on materials for students to use.
I use a hands on approach when teaching. I use Reading Workshop in my class, Math Tubs, Writers Workshop & Science Notebooks.
