I have been teaching full-time for 14 years, and have taught grades 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th. I currently have a 4th class and I teach English Language Arts and Social Studies. I have also taught in a resource room and self contained classroom. I have a passion for integrating technology and the arts into my classroom and love the enthusiasm it creates in my students.
Each and every day my goal is to foster creativity and critical thinking in the classroom. Not only do I want to help students to think beyond the classroom but to see the big world that awaits them. I believe we need to prepare students for the world they will live in, not just the standardized tests.
The real awards and honors come from working with students and seeing them grow. I also consider each and every sale from TPT an honor. I have presented at the New York State Exceptional Children and at the National Exceptional Children conferences.
