I have been teaching first grade for four wonderful years!
I use a balanced literacy reading program mixed with Daily 5 for literacy and a math curriculum and Daily 3 for math.
I went to the University of Illinois for my bachelors degree in Elementary Education and am currently attending graduate school to get my masters degree in Specialized Endorsements.
I live in the city of Chicago and teach in the suburbs and am loving every moment of it all! :)
