This is my 9th year teaching primary students. I have taught first, second, and third grades as a classroom teacher but I was also a reading specialist for 4 years.
I love teaching but love my students more.... I am very structured and I have high expectations for my students, but above all, my students know I love them... I am loving teaching literacy using Daily 5 and am incorporating CAFE for the first time this year.
