I have been a teacher for over thirty years! I spent twenty seven years teaching Kindergarten, before "graduating" to first grade. I am in my sixth year at this grade and loving the challenge that it brings each day.
It's hard to describe my teaching style. I like to think that I am a combination of all of the great teachers that I have known and admired.
It is a huge honor to be able to walk into my classroom each and every day. It is an honor to be touched by all of the children I have been fortunate to teach, and to learn from all of the wonderful teachers that I work with!!
I am a graduate of the State University of New York at Geneseo with a degree in Elementary Education with a Reading emphasis. I pursued my masters degree at the State University of New York at Buffalo.
I am proud to be part of the TpT community!
