This is my 16th year teaching and I still love every day. I have taught preschool, kindergarten, first grade, a combined third/fourth grade class, and currently teach first grade.
My classroom is a mix of inquiry based education, the Reggio Emilia approach, PBL, Montessori, and best teaching practices. I truly love what I do and try to make every lesson as engaging as possible.
