I have been teaching for 16 years in either Kindergarten, First Grade, or Third Grade. Since I began TPT, I have been teaching third grade. This is my 6th year in third grade. I love teaching, and I love creating new, fun materials for my students. To share these ideas is so rewarding to me. I am a gifted endorsed and teacher support specialist with a Master's Degree in Reading and Literacy. I love teaching and am so thankful I can call my hobby my job!
I am a center based kind of teacher. I use a lot of games in my classroom and a lot of technology. I use my activboard and my iPads daily in the classroom. I believe in making learning fun for my students.
