I have been teaching for 28 years. Teaching is the best job in the world! I started my career teaching First Grade, then worked in Early Childhood Special Ed. for 5 years, Kindergarten 20 years and moved to Second Grade two years ago.
My philosophy is....Whoever does all the work does all the learning. I believe in a balanced approach of direct teaching, guided practice and independent learning.... along with a lot of singing, dancing, repetition and laughter!
