I have had the pleasure of teaching in the Elizabeth Forward School District for 17 years. I have taught fifth grade, third grade and second grade. Second grade is my absolute favorite. I have been teaching second grade for 11 of those 17 years.
The structure of my classroom is the open concept. I gave away my Teacher Desk years ago. I have bars with stools for support groups. I have round, white tables with cushioned chairs for comfort. My students can write on the table and wipe them off. We have a 1:1 ipad initiative in our district from K-12. We are blessed with having a great deal of freedom to explore apps and utilize an amazing amount of technology in our district.
