I have been a fifth grade teacher since 2005. Before that, I spent about 5 years teaching ages 3 and 4. That's quite a jump! But, I love fifth grade and wouldn't want to teach anything else.
I try to offer my students a variety of creative, fun, engaging activities. My goal is to have a good balance between teacher-directed and student-directed lessons.
