I have worked with 1st through 7th grades, and everything in between! For a few years I taught in multi-age classrooms (2nd/3rd, 2nd/3rd/4th, and 4th/5th).
A welcoming environment goes a long way. I always want my students to feel welcomed, included, and cared for. A comfortable student is a student who is ready to learn! I love to give kids as genuine an experience as possible to learn from. I like lots of visual examples, lessons that get kids up and moving around, and activities that create fun, lasting memories.
There's no better honor or award than seeing my students grow up to be successful, both in school and in life!

Much of my teaching experience has been in Christian schools. (Or as I like to put it, I pray with my eyes open!) As a thank-you to the awesome schools I've had the privilege to teach in, most of the Christian education resources in my store will be free. My style is "Bibles open, kids active." :)
