I've been teaching in the public school system for 9 years. During that time I have taught 1st through 3rd grades.
I've learned that, above all, children need time. That and a little encouragement can help even the most reluctant learners do great things.
Yet to be added
I'm a masters degree educated Kindergarten teacher. I have continued my studies to complete 60 graduate credits beyond my degree.
I love creating, decorating, and moving things around until they "fit." I'm a first grade teacher, a wife, and first and foremost a mom.
