First grade teacher for 18 wonderful years, now on to a new adventure as the Media Specialist in my Preschool - 2nd grade school!
Teaching with love - in our classroom, it is important to take care of both our brains and our hearts!
My classroom was featured in the August/September 2013 issue of Scholastic® Instructor in an article on classroom setup. :) But the most important honors are the hugs, pictures my students draw, and "AHA!" moments they have!
