I am a first grade teacher and I love every minute of it! I also have experience as a second grade teacher. Making learning fun and hands-on for my students is so important to me. It is my personal goal that every child who enters my classroom leaves with a love of school and learning.
"No child learns the same - but every child CAN learn!" This quote sums up my teaching style - a hands-on, differentiated approach to learning.
