I student taught in both second and third grades. I am currently teaching third grade this year in Irving, TX.
Social constructivist that finds great importance in incorporating collaborative learning into the classroom. I also like to incorporate technology into my lessons as much as I can (both student and teacher use). I think it is critical to surround students with authentic learning materials and expereinces in order to stay relevant with students and keep them engaged in their learning.
