I am lucky enough to have taught 2nd and 3rd grade in Texas and Oklahoma!
I use small groups to teach about 75% of my curriculum. I love how much I can differentiate on the spot when it is just 5-6 of us learning new material at a time. I also love to use cooperative learning as a tool. It is amazing how much my students teach each other with out my direct intervention.
My highest honor, thus far, was being nominate for Teacher of the Year in my 4th year. I did not win, a much more worthy opponent did, but I am striving everyday to be better than the day before!
I have my Bachelor's from Oklahoma State (Go Pokes!) in Early Childhood Education.
