I am entering my 12th year as a teacher. I taught Special Education , kindergarten and 5th grade. I am currently teaching 1st grade!
I love for my students to have fun while they are learning. I enjoy creating units, so the kids can really dive into a particular theme or standard. I prefer my students to work on small groups with tons of hands-on centers!
