I taught first grade this year and taught second grade for five years prior! I have had experience teaching kindergarten and first grade summer school as well. And student taught in third & fourth grade.
Though not the best singer in the world, I enjoy music and try to incorporate song and dance into learning experiences to engage students. If nothing else, I at least incorporate humor into my lessons by ATTEMPTING to sing and dance! Luckily my technology skills are better than my singing voice. I find that with today's generation, students NEED to have access to technology in the classroom so I use it as much as possible. I support Whole Brain Teaching strategies as they have been a life saver for me!
