I have been teaching for 30 years. Over half of those years have been in First Grade. I enjoy creating my own units of study. I have taught in the Midwest all of my life. First in Nebraska and now in South Dakota.
I believe in the power of the multiple intelligences. I try to incorporate music, art, and literature into all of my units.
