I am a first grade teacher in Florida. This is my 11th year teaching. After 9 year in first grade, I am teaching a 1/2 combo this year. I taught 2nd grade one year and have tutored or taught summer school for all grades from PreK to 5th!
I am a hands-on teacher. I am not a fan of basal readers, workbooks or worksheets! Most of the time I am sitting on the floor working with my students! Reading Centers and Math Stations are a BIG part of my school day. Last year I started Daily 5 this year, and I LOVE it!
