4th Grade - 16 years with 5 years 3rd Grade Math
I believe that in order for students to learn you have to keep them engaged both mentally and physically. The more active the lesson, the more information they will retain. Learning should be fun and provide challenges along the way! We both love readers' theaters and games that get them up and moving. You will find that most of our downloads are focused on the students being actively engaged in the learning process.
I applied for a grant last spring and was thrilled to find out that I would get the opportunity to teach in Thailand over the summer. It was an experience of a lifetime!
I have a BS in Elementary Education and a Master's Degree in Curriculum.
I have taught fourth grade for 14 years. I have two grown daughters and have been married 25 years. I love my teaching and recently spent time during the summer teaching in Thailand. My master's degree is in curriculum and I have always enjoyed creating engaging lessons.
