I am entering my 12th year of teaching. I teach an "international class" of 5th graders...half EL newcomer students and half mainstream students. It is an incredible experience each and every day!
I eat, sleep, and breathe teaching! I love to create things for my classroom--from games to graphic organizers to decor! I also like to use a LOT of technology...it make such a great impact on my students' learning.
My colleague and I have led two student teams to be ThinkQuest finalists, in 2008 and 2009.
Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education Master's Degree in English as a Second Language
Not only do I love teaching, but I enjoy blogging and collaborating with others in the teacher-blogging community! My blog is Ladybug's Teacher Files--I would love for you to stop by. :)
