I have been teaching for going on 6 years now. :) Before that I was a substitute teacher in 4 different school districts.
I believe that centers should be fun, so students don't know that they are learning. :) I try to do a mixture of whole group lessons and activities and centers each day, along with trying to work with all different types of learning styles.

I have a Bachelors and Masters in Early Childhood Education. I am currently working on my Specialist in Early Childhood Education. I also hold a reading and gifted endorsement and I am currently working on my ESOL.
I have known since 2nd grade that I wanted to be a teacher. As I have grown up, I've known that it was what I was put on this Earth to do. I love figuring out how to help students learn best and the light bulbs that I see daily along with the excitement of when a student understands something is what I strive for every day.
