I've been teaching for over 20 years. I have taught special education and general education. Most of my career has been spent teaching first graders. Now I'm teaching 2nd grade! I taught at the University of Wisconsin - Whitewater for the Early Childhood program. I have also taught for Cardinal Stritch and Aurora University. I love working with teachers.
I use Daily 5 to teach my language arts block. I use a writer's workshop format. I'm adding Guided Math to my schedule!
